Spring Walk: Vale Park and Cemetery

“Especially Mushrooms”

This walk will focus on mushrooms as well as trees and wildflowers.  Mushroom identification will be for beginners!  Vale Cemetery is an historic “rural” cemetery that opened in 1857 with the planting of over 1,000 trees.  Today, Vale Cemetery is a Level 1 Accredited Arboretum, with trees in the cemetery proper as well as a wilder section in wooded areas.  Directions:  Use the entrance off Nott Terrace; from Schenectady’s State Street, turn north on Nott Terrace and then left through the entrance; from Union Street, turn south on Nott Terrace.  The address of the park refers to the State St. entrance and is not applicable.
