Brilliant and Bristly Buckmoths

October 01, 2016 - October 01, 2016

Join us for a 0.9 mile walk to discover the amazing world of buckmoths. The inland barrens buckmoth is a large beautiful moth with bold black and white wings that flies for only a brief window of time in the early fall. A species of special concern in New York State, the buckmoth is uniquely dependent on the scrub oak that thrives in this sandy fire-dependent ecosystem. 

The walk/hike will be over rolling sand dunes in the forested area. Please remember to dress for the weather, wear long pants, sturdy walking shoes, and bring drinking water. Whie leasehed pets are permitted on marked trails, we ask that visitors not bring pets to our educational programs.

The hike will cover .9 miles and last 1.5 hours. It is moderately difficult and a family friendly event, although not recommended for children under the age of 6. Advance registration is required. Please sign up by calling 518-456-0655 or visit AlbanyPineBush.org and click on "Events Calendar".
