SEPT. 6: Lock 4, Canal Park. Jackie Donnelly, leader. Located on the Champlain Canal of the Hudson River, the park offers both mixed-forest and alluvial habitats. We will see green dragon’s beautiful red fruit and probably the rare creeping bush clover in bloom, as well as the endangered provancher’s fleabane. Bald Eagles and Ospreys are often sighted here, too. Directions: If coming from the west, cross the Hudson River on the bridge in the middle of the Stillwater village, and watch for the entrance to Canal Park/Lock 4 on the right, immediately after crossing the river; a large parking area is adjacent to the lock. (Address 947 Stillwater Bridge Rd., Schaghticoke, NY.) PLEASE NOTE: 10 A.M. START.
Walks usually last around 2 hours. There is no pre-registration, but we may need to follow covid recommendations of the time. For information email [email protected]. Cancellations or changes may be found at www.ecosny.org or www.facebook.com/ecosny.
