Garlic mustard is an invasive plant common to the Eastern and Midwestern United States. It is harmful to RLT's nature preserves because it secretes a chemical into the soil that deters the growth of other plants and decreases competition.

Wildflower Walk at Bear’s Den in Stephentown  (May 21, 2022 10:00 am - 2:00 pm)

Wildflower Walk at Bear’s Den in Stephentown 

See a wide variety of spring wildflowers at the Rensselaer Land Trust’s Bear’s Den Preserve near Cherry Plain. This is a perfect hike to see wildflowers, including uncommon species and rich woods specialists, at their best. Bear’s Den was known to early settlers and you can still see evidence of their visits here; porcupine and bobcat are known to use the cave today. Leaders will help us identify the flowers we see. This is a moderately strenuous hike: The walk will be about two miles round trip to the cave and back, but the first half is almost all uphill, including two steep hills.

Meet at the parking lot of Berlin High School on NYS Route 22 just north of the hamlet of Cherry Plain.

This event is free and open to the public with a limited capacity,  pre-registration is require:  To register, please click HERE.
