Molly Marquand of the CRISP at the Catskill Center will lead a hike starting at 10 a.m. to Giant Ledge to examine a grove of American Ash trees for the presence of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an invasive beetle that is devastating ash trees in the Catskills. You will learn to identify the insect and the signs of its presence. Giant Ledge is one of the most spectacular spots in the Catskills, offering incredible views both east and west. It’s a short hike out with a huge payoff. Whether you haven’t been or if you know it well, you won’t want to miss this hike! Pre-registration is required.
