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.
