ARKVILLE, NY, August, 30, 2017 — The morning of September 9th, tap those in-the-know about invasive plant identifica- tion, watershed protection and stream restoration while catching breathtaking Catskill Mountain views.
Staff from the Catskill Center’s Streamside Acquisition Program and Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership are leading a guided stroll along the Batavia Kill stream in Windham as a part of the Hudson River Valley Ramble.
The scientists guiding the walk are local experts in their fields and will be sharing their expertise and enthusiasm regarding the care of streamside lands and their crucial importance for the well-being of Catskill plants, animals, and people.
The walk will be a mile-and-a-half along a level gravel path, beginning and ending at the Windham Path parking area on NY Route 23 in Windham.
Other than a water bottle, weather-appropriate clothing, and perhaps a jogging stroller for the littlest ones, no equip- ment is necessary. The walk is scheduled to begin at 10am and will take two hours. All ages are welcome to soak up a morning of family-friendly environmental education.
This event is sponsored by the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development.
