Postponed--Poestenkill Community Forest to Geiser Preserve

Start Date: Sunday, March 24, 2019 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Co-sponsored by Rensselaer Land Trust and Rensselaer Plateau Alliance.

 

Due to snow and high winds in the forecast for Saturday, March 23 we've postponed this program to Sunday, March 24 at 10:00 a.m.

We’ll snowshoe or hike, depending on conditions, from RPA's Poestenkill Community Forest to the top of Perigo Hill in RLT’s Geiser Preserve. We’ll see hemlock and hardwood forests, hemlock swamps and other wetlands, as well as looking for tracks of squirrels, porcupines, coyote, bobcat, whitetail deer, and moose.  The hike will be about 3.5 miles, including several uphill climbs and some bushwhacking, and take about three hours. Bring gear appropriate for the weather: snowshoes, spikes, or hiking boots. Wear warm clothes and bring water and snack/lunch.

Meet at the parking lot of the Poestenkill Community Forest in East Poestenkill.

Register in advance with Jeff Briggs by e-mail.

Suggested donation of $5 collected morning of event.
