Adult Learning Summer Series: Evening Discovery Hike in the Old Golf Course and Orchard at Minnewaska

Wednesday, August 21, 2024 05:00 PM - 07:00 PM

Join Nick Martin, Park Educator, for an evening open discovery hike along some of the carriage roads near Lake Minnewaska and through the old golf course and orchard. During this approximately two-mile hike, we will focus on awareness of the natural world – looking at and discussing what participants are interested in looking at, such as trees, mosses, amphibians, birds, and more. Part of this hike will take place on Lake Minnewaska and Upper Awosting Carriage Roads, which are gently sloping, gravel trails. The other part of this hike will take place on the grassy paths that wind through the old orchard and golf course, which may be muddy or wet. Participants should come well-prepared with enough food and water for the outing and are encouraged to wear sturdy and waterproof boots. Participants may want to bring binoculars if they have them. A few pairs will be available for participants to who would like to borrow them. Meet at the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center. Pre-registration is required by calling the Lake Minnewaska Visitor Center at 845-255-0752.
