Lecture – Reading the Woods Sunday August 25 1pm

What is living in the woods?  How do you know what is there?  Frequently, when hiking, we come upon crumbling stonewalls, fruit trees, and other evidence of former inhabitants but most of us do not realize what we are looking at.  This program will show how to differentiate between the works of man and the works of nature. The clues to what animals are living there are everywhere; you just need to know how to read them.  Join Doc Bayne and get a lesson in reading the Woods.

The trails can be steep and rocky, so please wear sturdy hiking shoes. Our hikes will include stops along the way to interpret natural and historic features. Hunting is allowed in portions of Sterling Forest State Park, we suggest wearing hunter orange or bright colors other than white during the hunting season. Registration is required for all programs.  For more information or to register, call 845-351-5907.
