About the Event
Human cultures have directed their gaze towards the heavens for thousands of years. Come with us to learn about the importance of stars in the Hudson Valley indigenous world. We will explore indigenous folklore related to astronomy, nocturnal birds, and fireflies. Join ethnoecologist Justin Wexler of Wild Hudson Valley on one of our seasonal events. We will learn about the local environment and indigenous Hudson Valley life of five centuries ago.
Check-in is at the DuBois Fort Visitor Center, and the tour will start at the replica Esopus Munsee wigwam and will guide visitors through the Nyquist-Hartcourt Wildlife Sanctuary.
