On October 12th, members of the Metropolitan Society of Natural History ventured out into the deciduous forest of Harriman State Park. Wildlife expert, Kelly Farrell took us on a four mile hike through the woods and over hills all the while teaching us a number of cool facts about the plants and trees that we came across. We found ourselves surrounded by Shagbark Hickory (Carya ovata), Hophornbeam (Ostrya virginiana), Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) and a number of species of maples as we climbed a number of challenging inclines and descended down some rocky slopes. Fun was had by all.
