Take a tour back in time at the PRLC’s Bye Preserve on Sunday, June 10th from 2 to 4pm (link to map). This short hike over moderately difficult terrain features impressive rock formations and abundant ferns and mosses. Participants will learn how to read evidence of our vast geologic history in the outcrops and boulders along our route and will receive tips on how to identify the plants that we see. Bye Preserve contains deciduous, riparian, and hemlock forests and harbors locally rare plants like Red elderberry and bladdernut. The Preserve is adjacent to the spectacular Mill River Gorge and a large privately-owned forested area that has been proposed for development. Hike leader Krista Munger will explain why protection and management are necessary to maintain habitat for wildlife in our region, and what you can do to help. Please register with Krista at email@example.com or 914-205-3533.

Bring your children or grandchildren – all ages are welcome and will find joy and inspiration on our hike. Expect to see frogs, turtles, birds, and very large trees.
