Book Talk: From the Hudson to the Taconics—Looking at Our Landscape Through the Lens of Habitats in the Chatham Area

Monday, June 17, 2024 - 18:00

Where: Chatham Public Library, 11 Woodbridge Avenue, Chatham, NY

Join authors of From the Hudson to the Taconics: An Ecological and Cultural Field Guide to the Habitats of Columbia County, New York for an engaging introduction to this richly illustrated and unique new book, which is the culmination of years of original research by the Farmscape Ecology Program and Hudsonia. Authors will share some of their experiences creating From the Hudson to the Taconics, exciting discoveries along the way, and how they hope to build on this work through a new habitat research and conservation initiative. The audience will also be invited to learn how one might use this book (available through the library) to become more familiar with the diverse and beautiful landscape of Columbia County and its surrounds. Authors will focus especially on some of their favorite habitats in the Chatham area.

This free talk can be enjoyed as a single event or paired with a Habitat Exploration Walk at Crellin Park, in which participants will have a chance to use the book to explore in more detail the many facets of several habitats.
