See the trees of the forest! What tree is that? What is on those leaves? Learn with Bard College Environmental and Urban Studies program coordinator Tom O’Dowd about common and uncommon trees, using the special clues they leave us, including identification through bark, buds, seeds and leaves found in the fields and forests of this public linear park and WVLT Conservation Easement.

Ferns and More in Rosendale with Lynn Bowdery.
Wallkill Valley Rail Trail from Binnewater Lot to Joppenbergh Mtn.
Meet at the Rail Trail Parking Lot on Binnewater Road, about .3 mile north of Route 213, Rosendale.
The Wallkill Valley Rail Trail north of the great trestle over the Rondout in Rosendale passes through a variety of shaded habitats which support a nice variety of ferns and other plants. Join WVLT’s Land Steward for a leisurely walk along the rail bed exploring the diversity of ferns and whatever else is interesting. Wear comfortable shoes, bring water, insect repellant and field guides as desired. Binoculars and magnifying glasses can be useful for studying plants, too. Click to REGISTER for Ferns and More!
