The Altered Landscape: Shawangunk Ridge Free Public Lecture Series

With Paul Huth, Mohonk Preserve Research Director Emeritus. For generations, the land on and around the Shawangunk Ridge has been shaped by its human inhabitants. From indigenous people, through European settlers and up to the present day, agricultural, industrial and recreational activities have impacted the region. Join us as we explore and identify some of the significant changes to the land over time. This lecture will take place at SUNY New Paltz Lecture Center Room 102.

The lectures, which will take place at SUNY New Paltz and SUNY Ulster, are open to the public and free of charge. Cancellations due to winter weather will be announced here.
