Please join us for the Spring Meeting of the Mohawk-Hudson chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club. The meeting will be held on April 27th, from 2-4 pm, at the Huyck Preserve in Rensselaerville. We have an exciting event planned, so please come and enjoy the spring season with us!
Adam Caprio, Buildings and Grounds Supervisor at the Huyck Preserve, will talk to the group about the history and mission of the Huyck Preserve and then head out for a leisurely hike around Lincoln Pond right outside the Eldridge Research Center. He will discuss the history of the land and the use of the forest for long-term research projects, and will point out items of interest along the walk past diverse forest, pond, wetland and stream communities. Expect some early spring mud along the trail!
We'll return to the Eldridge Research Center to see a Wildlife Alive! presentation by wildlife rehabilitator, Kelly Martin. The presentation will feature live native wildlife with an emphasis on natural history; what to and not do when finding a distressed wild animal in need of rescuing; and the impacts of humans on wildlife.
Please RSVP to Kimberly Berg at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 24th, so we know how many people to expect. Please prepare for the potential spring weather, and bring layers as the shoulder seasons are always variable. Also note, the trail may be muddy, so wear appropriate footwear and clothing.
Meet at the Eldridge Research Center:
Please plan to arrive shortly before 2PM.
