Habitat Exploration Walk: Greenport Conservation Area

Where: Greenport Conservation Area, 319 Joslen Blvd., Hudson, NY

Join authors of From the Hudson to the Taconics: An Ecological and Cultural Field Guide to the Habitats of Columbia County, New York for a walk exploring unique Hudson River and other habitats at the Greenport Conservation Area using this newly released book as a guide and resource. Whether one is already familiar with the Greenport Conservation Area or visiting it for the first time, this walk is designed to help everyone “see more colors” in the landscape. Participants will experience several habitats through multiple lenses, including history, culture, sensory immersion, and ecology, and learn how to recognize patterns in the distribution of plants and the animals associated with them.

Copies of From the Hudson to the Taconics will be available to use for the walk, though please bring your own copy if you have one. The books will also be for sale before and after the walk. The walk is free, but participants are requested to register. You can sign up for the walk by contacting the Hudson Area Library (518-828-1792 x 101) or by emailing fep@hawthornevalleyfarm.org.
