Families Invited to Wildlife Series at Hubbard Lodge on Sept. 29

Hudson Highlands Land Trust and Hudson Highlands Nature Museum (HHNM) will offer a series of three nature programs that bring the museum’s expertise to Hubbard Lodge in Cold Spring.

Families are invited to join environmental educator Carl Heitmuller to learn about coyotes, our canine neighbors, during the first presentation from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 29.

“Coyotes can catch and kill old and weak deer but they mostly eat smaller mammals like rabbits and mice,” said Heitmuller. “They are not a threat to humans!” Seldom seen and often misunderstood, coyotes are fascinating animals. Participants will make a track ID card to take home.

Future topics include woolly bear caterpillars (Oct. 13) and turkeys (Nov. 17). Workshops are recommended for adults with or without children, and for children ages 5 and up. Admission fees for all programs support the care of HHNM’s animals at the Wildlife Education Center in Cornwall. Admission is $7/adult and $5/child (museum members: $5/adult, $3/child). Visit hhnaturemuseum.org for more information, or call 845-534-5506, ext. 204. Hubbard Lodge is on Route 9, about 2/10 of a mile north of the intersection of Routes 9 and 301.
