OPEN DISCOVERY AT MILLBROOK PRESERVE
September 22, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Explore this Preserve-in-the-making, a hidden gem in the heart of New Paltz, with Lynn Bowdery. We will look at and discuss the landforms, flora and fauna, and human disturbances of this interesting preserve through which Mill Brook (also known as Tributary 13 of the Wallkill River) and several of its tributaries flow. Wear comfortable walking/hiking shoes (waterproof is a plus); binoculars and magnfiers are recommended; be prepared for mosquitoes and ticks. This trip will be limited to 8 participants. Please contact Lynn (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve your place and learn where to meet. Rain cancels.
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.
