Harriman State Park Fall Hike

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.
