The forests, meadows and wetlands of Greene County are a cycling kaleidoscope of seasonal change. In springtime, our migrant and resident birds are very busy nesting, and the meadows and forests are green with edible and medicinal plants.
Join ethnobiologist, Justin Wexler, on a Spring Walk at Brandow Point — the second of four seasonal walks on April 28th from 1:00 to 3:00pm and learn about springtime plant medicines and local native bird folklore and learn how much our bird life has changed over the past five centuries.
Throughout 2024, Justin will be leading four unique seasonal walks at Brandow Point. Justin’s guided seasonal walks will explore the outdoors and note the seasonal adaptations that make the Hudson Valley landscape so magical. The walks will identify local flora and fauna, their relationship with the surrounding landscape, and their role in Hudson Valley native languages and folklore. Each of Justin’s four seasonal walks will emphasize aspects that are unique to that season … so sign-up for just one walk or all four!
Dress appropriately for outside temperatures on the day of the walk and wear appropriate footwear for a 1-2 mile walk on potentially muddy trails over a hilly terrain.
The Spring Seasonal Walk is limited to 20 participants. Cost is $10 (plus a $2.51 registration fee).
