This class will meet at “Indian Creek Nature Center” on CR14 in Rensselaer Falls, where we will examine signs of wildlife and flora adapting to springtime in the Valley. Special attention will be paid to the phenology of wild flowers’ bloom and the return of migrating avian life. Possible effects on these species under varying climate change conditions will be analyzed and discussed.

Peter O’Shea is a naturalist and author with four published books on wildlife and hiking. He has been a guest naturalist at the Adirondack Park Visitors Interpretive Centers for over two decades. He also is a former board member of the St. Lawrence Land Trust and High Peaks Audubon Society. Peter has a special interest in mammal predation.
