Whether you’re a beginner looking for a brief outing, or experienced & looking for a real adventure to some nameless mountain peak or waterfall, Will can be your guide. Tune in at 91.3 FM or stream online @ to hear about more.

Two things. One is that gypsy moth damage is heavily impacting oak trees more towards the Hudson Valley than the Catskills interior. Also these little caterpillars are really nailing the apple trees too in some places. The second is more positive. Mushrooms are emerging with all this rain. Found a bunch of black trumpets (a.k.a. black chanterelle) last night!

May the forest be with you,
