XC skiers on the Art Roscoe Trails

What better way to start the new year than to try a new sport? On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, Allegany Nordic and the Environmental Education Department have teamed up to host an evening cross country ski on the Art Roscoe trails of Allegany State Park followed by a social in the Summit Warming Hut. Cross country skiing is an excellent low impact exercise, easy to learn, and a lifetime sport. Allegany Nordic will be on hand to help and give tips to new comers. All levels are welcome as we head into the woods for an evening ski on trails. Bring a headlamp, your sense of adventure and something to share for the social. Rental equipment will be available for a special price at the Summit Warming Hut from 5-5:45 PM. Come early to get fitted properly. The program starts at 6:00 PM with a short clinic.
The Outdoor Adventure Series is a great way to learn about all the fun activities offered within Allegany State Park- Western New York’s Playground. Check the Facebook page for more Outdoor Adventure Series programs coming up in 2019.

Please register for this event before 3:00 PM the day of the program. For more information please contact the Environmental Education/ Recreation Department at 716-354-9101 ext. 236

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
