Event includes live Wolf Program by the Wolf Conservation Center 

 (Garrison, NY) – On Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 10 am, in conjunction with both Boscobel’s new 2014 Education Program, The Woodland Trail is being expanded and rededicated as: The Frances Stevens Reese Woodland Trail of Discovery — a self-guided discovery hike for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages that will provide ample opportunities to learn about the history and environment of a natural forest, Constitution Marsh and the Hudson River.

“This project is essentially an outdoor exhibit that unfolds in the context of a Hudson Highlands setting,” claims Boscobel Executive Director Steven Miller. “While the trail is a wonderful asset for Boscobel, it is now a heightened educational component that will be used by everyone enjoying the natural setting of our attractive property. The trail includes 36 newly illustrated plaques depicting local birds, plants and wildlife, as well as new interpretive signage and free map brochures.”

To celebrate the new Trail of Discovery at Boscobel, Boscobel has invited the Wolf Conservation Center of South Salem NY to give a presentation about wolves so that visitors can discover the wolves’ relationship to the environment and the human role in protecting their future. The WCC’s wolf presentation will include its traveling ambassador wolf, Atka.

The Trail Event and Wolf Program at Boscobel will take place 10 am-12 pm on Saturday, April 19, rain or shine. Admission is FREE. Please register your attendance for Boscobel’s Trail of Discovery Celebration and Wolf Program at Boscobel.org by April 16.
