History as Ecology Series with Conrad: 5. From Earth to Brick
This is the fifth and last offering in the series “History as Ecology” by Conrad Vispo. Please make sure to register for this free event to reserve a space. They will provide registrants with location details and background information the week before the event.
This walk will pass through field and young forest and descend to (and later ascend from) the ruins of one of the many former brickyards along the Hudson River. What motivated and facilitated this activity? What impact did it have on the landscape?
The roughly two-mile round-trip will follow marked trails, but does involve some ups and downs. They plan to be outside for the entire period, with some pausing to chat, and participants should dress accordingly.
