April Precipitation Brings More Conservation
As the first, wintry quarter of 2017 comes to a close, we are gearing up to celebrate spring during our 25th anniversary year! MHLC is hosting two hikes in April, and preparing for several more events in May. Join us and get your nature fix at some of our fun, educational, and recreational community events.
On April 8th, we are partnering with Ondatra Adventures for a Hiking and Backpacking Workshop featuring tips and tricks to have a safe and fun hiking excursion. This interactive workshop is led by David Muska, a licensed NYS Wilderness Skills Instructor and owner of Ondatra Adventures. The event will begin at 10 AM at our Bennett Hill Preserve in New Scotland, and is expected to end at 1 PM. Space for this popular event is limited, so reserve your spot now by visiting our events page!
The second guided hike we are offering this April is at the Schoharie Creek Preserve. On Sunday, April 30th, join us for an educational, guided hike led by the Schoharie River Center. This hike will start at 1:30 p.m. and explore the 198-acre Schoharie Creek Preserve in Charleston, NY. This preserve features several beautiful waterfalls along Wilsey Creek at the northern border of the preserve. Be prepared for some steepness along the trail, and enjoy the fresh air and incredible views! Space for this outing is also limited, so register today.
We hope to see you at these events in April- both hikes are an excellent opportunity to fill out a few pages in your Capital Region Nature Passport! See you on the trails!
