Event Details

 

On Sunday, September 28rd at 10 a.m. Dr. Charles Canham will lead an interpretive walk along the Wappinger Creek Trail. The moderate 2-mile walk encompasses habitats ranging from young forests and fallow fields to streams and wetlands.

  

During the walk, Dr. Canham will share the history of Dutchess County's forests from the first settlers in 1750 to the current day—over 250 years of land use patterns that have transformed Hudson Valley landscapes. The stories told will include fascinating facts and folklore about the forest, as well as future changes likely under the many different current human impacts, including climate change, pests and pathogens, and air pollution.


The walk will begin at the Cary East (Gifford House) parking area, located at 2917 Sharon Turnpike (Rte. 44) in Millbrook, N.Y. Long pants and hiking shoes are recommended. Reservations required.
