Naturalist Aaron Bennett, a Catskill region native, will lead a hike through the Acorn Hill forest adjacent to the Ashokan reservoir. He will explain:
1. How large blocks of forest, geology combined with land management practices in the Catskill Mountain Region, help to keep the water pure.
2. Why the original engineers chose this site by pointing out the geography of the adjacent mountains and,
3. How multiple hamlets and villages had to be uprooted and moved to make way for the reservoir.
