Meet at 9:45 at the Normans Kill West parking lot.

This hike will be led by Alan Casline, a local poet, editor, and small press publisher. He is the editor of Normanskill, a watershed anthology from the Normanskill watershed.

We will start out in Normans Kill West, one of the most popular Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy Preserves, and learn about the natural and human history of the area.
