Plant Walk

Saturday May 27th, 1-4pm

Kick-off Memorial Day Weekend with the Andes Garden Club for an afternoon plant walk with Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower.  On this walk we will help you familiarize yourself with some of the plants that grow in our region, their medicinal benefits, nutritional value, and culinary uses, as well as our relationship with these plants, how to find, identify and forage responsibly. Marguerite will lead the walk, stopping to identify and discuss different plants along the route. Following the 1.5-2 hour outdoor session, we will continue inside to receive some information about the plants we saw. Marguerite will also share some of the dishes that she’s prepared for us using some of these plants, as well as recipes that you can take home.  Discussion is welcome at this time.  The event will conclude with a meditation of thanks and gratitude.

Land History Walk

Sat, July 15th, 10am-12pm

In partnership with Catskills Forestry Association, we present a walk through field and forest to explore history of the land. The Catskill Region’s forests have been shaped immensely by the land use history of our recent, and also very distant past. Some trees only grew here because of the actions of the people who came before us. We will walk through a forest describing the trees around us and point out the obvious, and sometimes very subtle clues that indicate what happened here more than 200 years ago to cause this tree to sprout. We will also discuss how our current actions (or lack thereof) will shape the forests of the future and what that might mean for people, wildlife, forest health, and forest history to come.

Registration through CFA website


Forest Bathing

Sat, August 5, 10-11:30am

“Forest Bathing” is the practice of deliberately observing and interacting with nature using all of our senses. It is a meditative act involving letting go of past and future, being a witness to the present moment, and deepening our relationship with nature by careful and slow observation. Email to register your spot on this mindful walk through The Uplands’ woods.
