We will meet upstairs at the New Paltz Village Hall, Plattekill Avenue, New Paltz. The Village Hall is located in the same building as the New Paltz Fire Station, near the SUNY campus. Park and enter on the east side of the building. Meet and mingle with new and old JBNHS friends and enjoy an informative program by Dan Snider, Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP) Field Projects Manager: “Tomorrow’s Most Wanted: The Top 5 Terrestrial Plant Threats,” the priority Early Detection species to watch for in the Catskills (and elsewhere). One of the goals of CRISP is to raise awareness about plants and animals that are likely to invade in the Catskills so that more eyes are trained to be out there looking for these likely invaders. There will be refreshments and a brief business meeting.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
