Dr. Charles Canham leading a forest ecology walk.

As part of the Annual Hudson River Valley Ramble, forest ecologist Dr. Charles Canham will be leading an interpretive forest walk on the Wappinger Creek Trail. The moderate 2-mile walk encompasses habitats ranging from young forests and fallow fields to streams and wetlands.

While exploring our forests, fields, and wetlands, Dr. Canham will discuss how land use has transformed Hudson Valley landscapes. Discover how current forest composition is a reflection of past farming practices, and how the future forest will be influenced by climate change, pests and pathogens, and air pollution.

Wear long pants and sturdy shoes (no sandals). Reservations required.
