Discover Fall in the Hudson Valley with Historic Huguenot Street
Fall is a popular season in the Hudson Valley. Many people visit to enjoy the leaves changing color, the fresh apples and the amazing pumpkins. The air turns crisp and the days shorten but it is still a great time to enjoy the outdoors. This Saturday Historic Huguenot Street (HHS) invites you to travel back in time and discover what fall meant to the indigenous people of the Hudson Valley. Join the for a walking tour The Autumn Harvest: Maize, Nuts and Venison.

He will help you identify things along the trail while explaining the surrounding ecosystem. He will introduce you to the Munsse language and it's folklore.
