Siegel-Kline Kill Conservation Area - 1452 Garage Place Road, Ghent
As the name suggests, December’s Full Cold Moon inaugurates winter’s cold weather, and offers us the opportunity to walk the moonlit landscape with all the leaves, and possibly some new snow, on the ground. Join us at the Seigel-Kline Kill Conservation Area. Please dress for the weather, and bring a flashlight.

Round Ball Mountain Conservation Area - 503 Carson Rd, Ancram
We invite you to celebrate the New Year with a New Moon’s Walk. Come test your night vision, sharpen all your other senses, and join us in New Year fun as we experience the evening landscape without the aid of moonlight. Our walk will be at Round Ball Conservation Area. Please, dress in layers, and bring a flashlight.
Canceled due to Weather
Sorry for the inconvenience, but the low cloud cover and rain this afternoon has forced us to cancel this evening’s program. Join us for a winter solstice New Moon walk in December, and hopeful a snowshoe moon walk later this winter.
This month’s name comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. Join us at the Hand Hollow Conservation Area.
As the leaves begin to fall, this autumn moon provides light to see animals by. Join us as we walk the open fields at the Ooms Conservation Area in Chatham.
In the days before tractor lights, the Harvest Moon helped farmers harvest their crops. Join us as we hike to the highest water fall in Columbia County where we will discuss the diverse history of the site and surrounding landscape. Bring flashlights and sturdy shoes.
View the Hudson River and beyond by the light of the Full Sturgeon Moon. We’ll talk about the conservation efforts for Atlantic sturgeon in the Hudson River and other creatures along the way.
Walk through the fields and young forest along the Kline Kill. After the sunset, we will watch for the light from the fireflies to guide us back! Learn about firefly habitats and ways you can help scientists collect data on firefly distribution and activity!
Join CLC staff for a midsummer night stroll. It’s the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and rumored to have mystical powers. According to Icelandic folklore, cows gain the power of speech for this one night in June. Bring flashlights and sturdy shoes to walk the fields under the moonlit sky.
“Love is in the air.” Hear some of the region’s tuneful amphibians sing their mating songs. CLC staff will provide a brief lesson on frog call identification and information about amphibians common to the area.
A full moon walk under the Cold Moon. Enjoy the quiet, clear evening as we walk through fields and forest. We’ll listen for owls calling in the night. Snowshoes provided if needed.
Join CLC for a walk under the Geese Going Moon, also known as the Frost Moon and Beaver Moon. In late November, beavers are actively preparing for winter. For both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze. Beavers were used for their warm furs. We’ll stroll towards the beaver dam and see the site in a different light! Don’t forget your flashlight.
