Barbara Bash is an artist and author. She draws on large sheets of paper and speaks about her illustrated journaling of the natural world, exploring what calls our attention and brings us onto the sketchbook page. Bats and birds, trees and sky are all ready to engage. She will speak on Saturday August 3rd, 2019 at 1pm at Woodchuck Lodge. Her book, “True Nature: An Illustrated Journal of Four Seasons in Solitude”, will be available.

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. For more information or images visit

On the first weekend of every month, Woodchuck Lodge will be open to the public from 11am to 3pm with docents to guide visitors.
