    DuBois Fort Visitor Center, Historic Huguenot Street

    The second in a series of four seasonal nature walks in the Nyquist-Harcourt Wildlife Sanctuary titled, Everywhere at Home: How Local Native People Once Lived With The Land.

    Local native peoples once made annual, seasonal trips to the habitats where the land had the most to share. For example, in the Hudson Valley indigenous calendar, springtime was spent along the tributary streams of the Hudson River to catch spawning fish. Summer was spent in floodplain villages adjacent to the maize crops. Autumn was a time when people collected nuts and set brush fires to hunt game in the hills. And early winter was a time for a special extended stay in nearby mountain valleys for trapping. These are only a few of the many ways in which the Esopus people and their neighbors lived off of the land.

    Attendees should check in at the DuBois Fort Visitor Center 10 minutes before the start of the tour. The tour will begin at the wigwam.

    General Admission $20

    Discounts are available for HHS members, seniors, students, active military members, veterans, and children under 13 (with promo code NatureWalk10)
