Enjoy friends, food, an educational talk and project, and the view from the pavilion at beautiful Hasbrouck Park in Kingston.
Joining us this year will be Emily Puthoff and Elena Sniezek of Hudson Valley Bee Habitat. Hudson Valley Bee Habitat’s mission is to utilize their expertise as artists, designers, and mindful educators to pollinate public engagement with bees, the environment, and each other in order to help both humans and bees thrive. Emily and Elena will tell us about what they are doing to educate the community, their partnership with the Kingston Land Trust to build the Kingston Bee-Line along the Kingston Greenline as well as leading us in building our very own bee habitats that we can take home with us.

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.
