On Saturday October 5th, 2019 at 1pm, join us for a leisurely walk with Justin Wexler of Wild Hudson Valley, who grew up exploring the eastern Catskills and reading John Burroughs. He is an ethnoecologist, studying the relationship between local native peoples and their lands. Join us for this nature walk to explore the natural world as understood by the indigenous peoples of the Northeast. Topics range from folklore related, to the autumn songbird migration, to the medicinal and edible properties of various fruits, fall hunting tactics and more.

This free event takes place at Woodchuck Lodge, located at 1633 Burroughs Memorial Road, Roxbury, NY 12474. For more information or images visit www.jbwoodchucklodge.org.
