Naturalist Series

Part of our Rensselaer Naturalist Series co-sponsored by Rensselaer Land Trust and Rensselaer Plateau Alliance! All are welcome to attend. Oak vs maple? Red maple vs. sugar maple? No worries -- trees are one of the easiest groups to learn, and the Kinderhook Creek Preserve’s many habitats have a good variety. Dave Hart will show us how to identify the different kinds of trees and tell us their ecological and cultural stories. 

Meet at the parking lot of the Kinderhook Creek Preservein East Nassau.
