Black Rock Forest is a not-for-profit organization with a mission of advancing scientific understanding of the natural world through research, education, and conservation programs. The Consortium maintains a 3,838-acre forest and a scientific field station in the Hudson Highlands, 60 miles north of New York City, and collaborates with its members – universities, schools, scientific and cultural institutions – to pursue and foster scientific inquiry, and to create educational programs for K-16 students, teachers, and the general public.
Black Rock Forest works with many partners to pursue conservation goals in the Hudson Highlands and the greater mid-Hudson Valley region.
Part of the proceeds from this event will go to support Black Rock’s educational initiatives. We think this will be a very special event and we hope to introduce you to this very special place which is very close to our hearts.
