  Return to Catskills Wolf Cabin Located in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, Catskill Animal Sanctuary provides a safe and loving haven for abused and abandoned horses and farm animals—animals who have never known warm shelter, spacious pastures, good food, or the touch of a kind hand. Since 2001, CAS has provided refuge for close to 400 such animals, including horses, ponies, cows, goats, sheep, donkeys, pigs, rabbits, and a variety of birds. Our trains provide passenger service along the scenic Esopus Creek. Take a 14-mile round trip on the scenic train through the beautiful Catskill Mountains or a 6 mile round trip on the Esopus Creek shuttle, creek users ride one way. At Phoenicia, experience life both past and present by visiting the village as well as the historic 1900 railroad depot.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation exists to:"conserve, improve, and protect the New York State's natural resources and environment, and control water, land and air pollution, in order to enhance the health, safety and welfare of the people of the state and their overall economic and social well being." Belleayre Mountain is located in the heart of the Catskill Mountains in the Catskill Forest Preserve on forever wild land. When the great snow flew across the Catskill Mountain chain they paused, gathered in abundance, and created a massive snow hole in the middle of the Catskill Forest Preserve. Belleayre Mt. rising majestically in the middle of the Preserve, was declared "Forever Wild" by New York State in 1885, the year the Forest Preserve was created. The Catskill Center is a non-profit organization working to protect the cultural, historic, and natural resources of the Catskill Mountains.
