Adirondack Naturalist Outing

The natural history of the Adirondacks is a story of a glacier-carved landscape that's made of some of the oldest rocks on planet earth where temperate meets boreal and the peaks of the tallest mountains are home to a tundra-scape of some of the rarest plants in New York State. During an Adirondack Naturalist Outing, you'll find your place in the story.


A Wild Neighbors Nature Connection Adirondack Naturalist Outing is all about tapping into your interests and curiosity around Adirondack wildlife. Some past outings have included the following topics:
-Stratified habitat zones of Adirondack mountains
-Adirondack Trees
-Adirondack Wildflowers
-Adirondack Mammals
-Adirondack Herps
-Wildlife Tracking in the Adirondacks
-Adirondack Glacial Erratics
-Ferns, Bryophytes, and other ancient plants of the Adirondacks
-Adirondack Peatlands
