Join Cary Institute scientist Dave Strayer for a walk along the Wappinger Creek Trail and see what is happening in a small trout stream during the summer. Strayer will collect and observe stream insects, streamside vegetation, and talk about Cary's research on freshwater ecology.
Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes, be prepared for ticks and mosquitoes, and bring drinking water. In the event of rain please bring rain gear. The walk will begin at the Cary East (Gifford House) parking area, located at 2917 Sharon Turnpike (Rte. 44) in Millbrook. Reservations are required.
