Part of our Rensselaer Naturalist Series! David Hunt will show us how to identify common plants of marshes and swamps, and tell us about the ecology of wetlands. Quacken Kill Marsh is a diverse riparian wetland complex dominated by shallow emergent marsh and shrub swamp with narrow strips of cobble shore along a marsh headwater stream. Wear footwear that can get wet. Meet at the small dirt pull off at the edge of the field on the west side of Jay Hakes Road, about .5 mile south of NY Route 2.
