The forests, meadows and wetlands of Greene County are a cycling kaleidoscope of seasonal change. In autumn, our many nut-bearing trees and shrubs begin to drop huge harvests of nuts, and many bird species are on their migration south for the winter.
Join ethnobiologist, Justin Wexler, on a Autumn Walk at Brandow Point — the final of four seasonal walks on October 13th from 1:00 to 3:00pm and learn about the the natural world through the lens of Northeastern native languages, history, and folklore.
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!
Dressappripriately 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 Winter Seasonal Walk is limited to 20 participants. Cost is $10 (plus a $2.51 registration fee).
