Leader: Claire Nolan • For More Information: 518-465-8930
Our experienced, ever cheerful leader, Claire Nolan, will lead you through a wonderland of sand dunes and pines. Claire is well known as a cyclist, cross-country skier and very much as a professional and accomplished storyteller. Claire’s highly contagious sense of wonders is fully found in her marvelous manner of storytelling. I can’t say but if you are lucky you may get treated to an extremely enjoyable and spellbinding tale along the trail.
If the temperature is above 32 degrees, please wear protective clothing to prevent tick bites. Bring deet or insect repellent to spray on you before beginning the walk. Check carefully for ticks right after the walk and again as soon as you get home.
The hike is free and open to the public.
Bring your friends!
Save The Pine Bush is in need of more
For the last few years ; the Save the Pine Bush outing leaders have been Andy Arthur, Claire Nolan and John Wolcott. Our outing events are once a month, always on a Saturday and usually the third or fourth Saturday. We three, however, are not always readily available and we’ve come close to having no hike at all for a given month as happened for the first time ever last month. To prevent this from happening again, we are appealing for more volunteer leaders.
With more leaders we can hopefully have hikes lead by persons with more time and less competing obligations for any given hike date. I and Andy are generally available for going over data about various Pine Bush area and routes. Please e-mail the Newsletter at firstname.lastname@example.org or call John Wolcott at 465-8930 if you are interested in volunteering for this. Hope to see you out on the trail!
