OPEN DISCOVERY AT MILL BROOK PRESERVE

April 18

Explore this new Preserve, the hidden gem in the heart of New Paltz, with Lynn Bowdery. We will look at and discuss  whatever catches our attention as we explore the paths and waterways. At this time of year, there is a good chance of  hearing and seeing American Toads and Spring Peepers calling in the beaver impoundments. Early wildflowers, birds,  

and insects will also be present. The footpaths might be muddy, so appropriate footwear is a must. Binoculars and  magnifiers are recommended, and there might be blackflies, mosquitoes and ticks. This trip will be limited 10  participants. Please contact Lynn (lynn.bowdery@gmail.com ) to reserve your place and learn where and when to  meet. Rain cancels.

DOWNLOAD THE REFRIGERATOR READY FIELD TRIP LIST FOR 2021

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.
