Get Outdoors! AWSMP Offers Summer Youth Hike Series

July 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until August 18, 2020

The Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program (AWSMP) presents the Summer Youth Hike Series on Tuesdays this summer beginning July 14, 2020. Middle and high school youth living in the Ashokan Watershed are invited to join to a series of trail hikes to learn more about the Ashokan Watershed’s creeks and streams. Hikes will be led by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County educators and feature a local stream/watershed professional who will share their experience and expertise.

A series of watershed hikes are planned for Tuesdays through August 18th. Each hike will meet at a trailhead at 10 a.m. and conclude by 2 p.m. Youth are required to bring a lunch, water, and be dressed for the weather. Participants will be asked to physically distance during hikes and wear face coverings when stopped for group discussion. An adult will be present to assist youth with distancing. Masks will be provided.

Hikes are free to residents of the Ashokan Watershed. Generally, the Ashokan Watershed overlaps the towns of Shandaken, Olive, Woodstock, and Hurley in Ulster County, and Lexington and Hunter in Greene County.

For more information, call the AWSMP office at (845) 688-3047 or email Matt Helffrich at mdh268@cornell.edu.
