Catskill’s Lost Animals Topic at Roxbury’s Famed Woodchuck Lodge
A handful of fascinating creatures once inhabited the Catskill Mountain region, but have disappeared over the last three centuries. On Saturday October 3 there will be a presentation and guided walk to learn about these animals, their impact on local ecosystems, and their role in indigenous folklore and land use. Educators Anna Plattner and Justin Wexler teach about the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains through the eyes of the native people who once inhabited the region. The event takes place at naturalist John Burroughs' summer home and the location of his grave site. The time is 1-2:30 pm.
This event is FREE and takes place at Woodchuck Lodge, 1633 Burroughs Memorial Road, Roxbury, NY 12474. All are welcome. For more information on this event and for the history of this most famous Catskill historic site CLICK HERE
