Helderberg Hilltowns Association (HHA) is making plans for this year’s promotion of our local farms, artisans, businesses and civic organizations. The seventh annual Discover the Hilltowns – Farms and Artisans Tour will be held on Saturday and Sunday, September 16 and 17, 2017, and the Huyck Preserve will be offering a couple guided walks:
Saturday, September 16th: Join us at 9am for a Naturalist Hike with local naturalist, Chris Schiralli. With extensive background on the varied flora and fauna in and around the Huyck, Chris will take hikers on a guided journey highlighting all the seasonal wonder nature provides during late September. This hike is scheduled to begin at the Research Center, located 284 Pond Hill Road, Rensselaerville NY 12147.
Sunday, September 17th: Join us at 10am for a very special History Hike and Tour of Eldridge Research Center! Led by long-time Huyck Preserve staff member, Adam Caprio, this hike will begin at the Visitor's Center and lead participants along the Falls Trail, around the east side of the lake trail and then to the Research Center. Here, participants will get to see where our researchers do their work, as well as learn the historical significance of our facilities. Come along and explore the history of the Huyck Preserve and the bygone days of the milling industry of Rensselaerville with a Sunday morning hike at the Preserve! This hike will begin at the Visitors Center, located at 5052 Delaware Turnpike, R'ville NY 12147.
Please wear comfortable, sturdy shoes and dress in layers for all hikes.
We hope you will be able to join us for this exciting weekend!
