On Saturday July 6th, 2019 at 1pm, come meet a peregrine falcon, screech owls, a red-tail hawk and a threatened barn owl and kestrel, some of the many raptors that live in our woods and mountains with our speaker Annie Mardiney. Annie is a state and federally permitted wild bird rehabilitator with many stories to share of rescues, releases, and actions you can take to ensure the survival of these awesome birds.
John Burroughs Woodchuck Lodge thanks the Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC) for their Public Education Grant Funding, which supports our Wild Saturday programming, the collaborative goal of heightening our awareness as Catskill Mountain stewards, global neighbors and dear friends to John Burroughs’ legacy.
Woodchuck Lodge’s Wild Saturdays have been hugely popular with locals and visitors alike. The Wild Saturday program will continue until October. On the first Saturday of every month at 1pm, one guest speaker will give a talk on our local, natural world, providing local fun and interest at Woodchuck Lodge, John Burroughs’ former home in Roxbury.
This free event takes place at Woodchuck Lodge, located at 1633 Burroughs Memorial Road, Roxbury, NY 12474.
