The forests, meadows and wetlands of Greene County are a cycling kaleidoscope of seasonal change. By midsummer, most bird species have finished nesting, the landscape is buzzing with insect life, and a number of native shrub species bear large harvests of edible fruit.
Join ethnobiologist, Justin Wexler, on a Summer Walk at Brandow Point — the third of four seasonal walks — on July 28th from 1:00 to 3:00pm and learn about the local environment and and how native people lived with the land here 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 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 Summer Seasonal Walk is limited to 20 participants. Cost is $10 (plus a $2.51 registration fee).
