ULSTER PARK (Ulster County)—The public is invited to join a hike through a forested area along the Hudson River to learn about and document the status of specific plants that can offer scientists clues about how the species are being impacted by a changing climate in the Hudson Valley. Participants also will have an opportunity to wade into the Hudson to help catch fish using large nets. After being identified and classified so information about the catch can assist scientists, the fish will be released.
