Hudson River Valley Ramble Event
Saturday, September 5, 10 am-12 noon, Moonbeams Preserve, 219 Prosperous Valley Rd, Middletown, NY.
Join OCLT in search of Monarch butterflies at Moonbeams Preserve! Dr. Jennifer Merriam from the SUNY Orange Biology Department will lead participants on maintained paths through the fields of the preserve to locate and observe these iconic pollinators. As the decline of the species continues to baffle scientists and casual observers alike, participants will have the opportunity to monitor the preserve for monarch activity! Event is suitable for all ages. High socks, sunscreen and bottled water are recommended. This free event is part of the Hudson River Valley Ramble, an annual series of events that highlight the history, culture and natural resources of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area.
