Sherret Chase still active as he nears 100

Sherret S. Chase, whose research in forestry led to his co-founding of the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development, lives on a mountainside in the Town of Olive. Although he will turn 100 next spring, he still walks without a cane, takes crosscountry road trips with his daughter, Helen Chase, and offers advice to Catskills powers that be.
