Winter Walk

January 28, 2024: Winter Seasonal Walk with Justin Wexler

The forests, meadows and wetlands of Greene County are a cycling kaleidoscope of seasonal change. Winter is a time of rest. Plant life is dormant, and many animals relax or sleep in their dens. But by midwinter, nature begins to awaken.

Join ethnobiologist, Justin Wexler, on a Winter Walk at Brandow Point — the first of four seasonal walks on January 28th from 1:00 to 3:00pm and learn about the local environment and the lifeways of local native peoples of five centuries ago.

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 in appropriate layers for outside temperatures on the day of the walk and wear appropriate footwear for a 1-2 mile walk on potentially snow-covered or muddy trails over a hilly terrain.

The Winter Seasonal Walk is limited to 20 participants. Cost is $10 (plus a $2.51 registration fee).
