Alpiner Shorty hike at Huyck Preserve.June 14,2018.
3 members attending
After a hike to beautiful Rensselaerville Falls we decided the wind was too strong to launch our boats. So we explored the trails around Myosotis and Lincoln Ponds. Beautiful well maintained trails to marshes and varying types of forrest. Many stone walls outlining old farm fields.
The trail had three color ribbons marking the trail. We learned that there will be a trail run walk tomorrow and the ribbons mark different races.
We talked to some of the research staff and learned a little bit about the studies currently taking place. Spruce trees are wired to study how the tree knows to send extra nutrients to damaged parts of the tree. A young woman we met was researching endangered carrion beetles!
