Reading the early winter woods

Join the Columbia Land Conservancy and Wild Hudson Valley

Join the Columbia Land Conservancy and Wild Hudson Valley for an exploration of the forest in wintertime at Greenport!

With the cold Hudson River and snowy Catskills as our backdrop, we will look at tracks and other signs to interpret the activities of local fauna, practice winter plant identification, and talk about the traditional winter activities of local native people centuries ago.

“This event is a unique opportunity for participants to connect with the natural world and gain a deeper understanding of what winter was like for native peoples,” says Jenifer Rosete, Conservation Education Coordinator. “I can’t wait to learn more!”
