Evening Walk in the IBM Glen To The Waterfalls with Colleen Wolpert and a shorter, easier hike with Victor Lamoureux.

www.watermancenter.org/pubevnts.htm

Colleen Wolpert will lead a long hilly hike to the waterfalls from 6 PM to 8:30 PM and Victor Lamoureux will lead a shorter easier hike that has fewer hills from 6 PM to 8 PM.

Colleen will provide both groups with an introduction to butterflies and the plants they require to keep their life-cycle going in the Glen. This may include seeing a caterpillar and the release of a butterfly.
On the hike, Colleen will identify butterflies and other insects, flowers, trees, and birds. She will encourage people to learn to recognize birds by their songs and identify the host plants for some butterflies. Some history of the Glen will also be provided. Colleen Wolpert has taught butterfly classes and led butterfly walks for the Waterman Center.

On the shorter hike, Victor Lamoureux will share his knowledge of birds, trees, amphibians, and other things of interest in the Glen. Victor is an Adjunct Professor of Biology at BCC. He is also a veteran birder and award winning wildlife photographer.

To register, call 625-2221. Children welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. $3.00/members, $4.00/non-members, $1.00 for children. Waterman membership forms will be available at the Glen.

Please wear sturdy shoes. Bring a hiking stick, if you wish, as the hike is hilly. Dogs not allowed.
A booklet, "Introduction to Some Trees and Other Things in the Glen" by Susan Hall and Terry Glasspool and a double sided guide, "Butterflies of the Southern Tier of NY" with 37 colorful pictures of local butterflies can be purchased for $1.00 each before the hike. "Plants in the IBM Glen" a booklet listing the wildflowers, trees, and shrubs in the Glen prepared by Irene Tomek is $1.00 and one with scientific names is $2.00. These can be purchased before the hike.

DIRECTIONS TO THE IBM GLEN: Drive north on Robinson Hill Rd. from Country Club Rd. in Endwell for 1.2 miles. Look for a green entrance gate and The IBM Glen sign on the right hand side of the road. The parking lot is a short distance beyond the gate.
