We took some pictures of the 4-H kids planting our pollinator garden in early May, and then got some pictures on Monday, June 29, what progress!
Local Boy Scout, Blake Overton, is building an observation beehive for the library thanks to many donations raised in the past year. He is now in the construction phase of the project. Below is a picture of the main part of hives so far, minus the kiosk. You can visit his website and learn more about the project here.
There are many hiking opportunities near the library, including the Kenape Brook/Ashokan High Point trail. You can access trail maps, including USGS topographical maps on Ulster County’s REConnect website. Click on Trails and Routes and check the boxes for trail heads and hiking trails and the trails will appear in red.
For those who like to explore the woods without a trail, you can also get a permit to hike in the Ashokan Reservoir property across from the library by applying to the DEP. There is a link to the application here.
Please take safety precautions before heading into the woods. Get hiking safety tips here.
Join us for our rollicking children’s story hour of books, crafts, singing, music and movement.
