Esopus Bend Nature Preserve Tree Identification Walk

October 6 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Esopus Creek Conservancy is sponsoring a Tree Identification Walk at Esopus Bend Nature Preserve in Saugerties on Sunday, October 06, 2019. Vern Rist will lead us at a leisurely pace through a variety of woodland habitats in the Nature Preserve. Fall color should be starting to show as we observe and discuss how and why the leaf color changes and some clues to help identify the tree species.

Meet 9:00 a.m. in the Saugerties Village Beach parking lot on Rte. 9W, just north of the Esopus Creek bridge, at the foot of Partition Street in the Village of Saugerties.

Bring binoculars and tree guides if you have them, and be prepared for Autumn conditions that may include cool air temperatures and light rain. Heavy rain will cancel the walk. Children are welcome and encouraged, but please do not bring pets.
