"Love Lives of Animals Hike"

Join us this Sunday morning when a member of Scenic Hudson's land conservation team will lead a short hike and explain some of the interesting ways that animals court one another.
Some species show off with ornate feathers or fins that act like flamboyant costumes. Others have to sing or dance for hours. Great feats often are performed, including fiercely battling with other would-be suitors. Some species mate for life, while others play the field. There are even cases where the mating game results in death for one of the participants.
This annual outing is a chance to learn about some of nature's mysteries and marvels and how even the odder forms of wildlife courtship contribute to the stunning array of beauty in the outdoors.
WHAT: "Love Lives of Animals Hike"
WHEN: Sunday, Feb. 13, 10 a.m.
WHERE: Madam Brett Park, Tioronda Ave., Beacon
Please wear clothing appropriate for the weather, including sturdy shoes (hiking boots or similar). Also bring water and a snack. See the event page to register (and get directions).
See you there!
