Part of our Rensselaer Naturalist Series! Rich Ring, Botanist with the NY Natural Heritage Program, will lead us as we explore this ecologically diverse area where the Hoosic River meets the Hudson. We'll look for and identify plants of meadows, forest edges, shale ledges and floodplains. 

Meet at the parking lot at Lock 4 Canal Park in Schaghticoke. The park is off of Stillwater Bridge Road, which runs between Stillwater and Schaghticoke. On the east end (the Schaghticoke side)of the Stillwater Bridge Road bridge over the Hudson, the park is the on the left as you start over the bridge going to Stillwater, with a gate and sign saying gate closes at 4:30. (Note that there are two roads here, make sure you enter the road for the lock and not the island access road with the private mailbox on it. The lock is clearly marked.)
