#var:page_name# cover

Rensselaer Land Trust (RLT) and Rensselaer Plateau Alliance (RPA) have teamed up to share opportunities for you to unplug, connect with nature, and experience what Rensselaer County has to offer. Join us!

Join us at RPA's Poestenkill Community Forest as we check out vernal pools for different types of amphibian eggs, look for mating wood frogs, and other early amphibian breeding sites. Turn over some logs and stones to find those evasive salamanders. Amphibians make up a larger mass than all the mammals in forested areas. Get to know your locals!

Wear rubber boots or sneakers you don’t mind getting very wet.

Children welcomed. $5 suggested donation collected day of the event.
