There has been a name change at one of the locations of the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development in New York.

The center announced on Monday that its four-year-old Catskill Interpretive Center has been renamed the Catskills Visitor Center and remains dedicated to the late Congressman Maurice Hinchey. The visitor center continues as a partnership between the Catskill Center and the state Department of Environmental Conservation. Catskill Center Executive Director Jeff Senterman, says the number of people coming to the visitor center increased by 36 percent from 2017 through 2018.  A new road sign will welcome visitors this summer. The visitor center is on Route 28 in Mount Tremper, in Ulster County, near the entrance to the 700,000-acre Catskill Park.
