Bird Walk! at Albany Rural Cemetery - April 29, 2017 : 7:30am - 10:00am
Birds and Beer Walk - with the Rensselaer Land Trust! - May 7, 2017 : 8:00am
Don’t miss the mating and migration rites of Spring in the bucolic and historic setting of the Albany Rural Cemetery! Join us in the Chapel with Michael Radlick from the Albany Rural Cemetery as he will give a quick intro to the history and design of this historic cemetery’s landscape. This 467 acre National Historic Landmark is an exemplar of the rural or garden cemetery movement of the 1800’s with its winding roads, wooded hills and beautiful burial monuments, featuring the resting places of John Boyd Thacher (Thacher State Park) and President Chester Arthur among many other notables.
The bird walk will commence soon after with our ASCR bird walk leader. We will listen for and find spring migrators and avian denizens as we walk the cemetary's rolling terrain of various paved surfaces. Make sure to bring binoculars and wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
*Space is limited and Registration is required! Please call the Albany Rural Cemetery Office at 518- 463-7017 to reserve your spot!
