3 “Exploring the Shawangunks – a visual odyssey” with photographer Nora Scarlett at Morgan Outdoors, 1pm. Her stunning images will inspire and delight nature lovers, photographers, hikers and anyone who appreciates our remarkable landscape. In the recently released book “Saving the Shawangunks” by Carleton Mabee, she created a portfolio of images to compliment the text.  They depict familiar locations seen with a different eye, many from areas that would have been impacted by the development documented in the book.  These evocative images result from over 10 years of hiking the region, all made possible because of the persistent and tenacious efforts of so many to preserve this land.  Nora hopes that viewing these photographs will inspire people to get out and appreciate the wonders that abound. To reserve a seat, call Morgan Outdoors at (845)439 5507. Both books will be available for sale, with a book signing immediately following the presentation. Morgan Outdoors is located at 46 Main Street in Livingston Manor. Hours are 10 – 6pm, Mon, Thur, Fri, Sat. and 10-4 Sunday. More details at

Participants will receive a Walnut Mountain packet from the Liberty Parks & Recreation with a trail map and some great historical facts about Walnut Mountain, including its history as a ski slope. Meet in Walnut Mountain’s large parking lot on West Lake Street, (at intersection of W. Lake Street and Eagle Drive) located between Rt. 52 and Rt. 55. There is a large wooden Park sign at the entrance.  Walnut Mountain is a 265-acre Town Park with over 14 miles of single-track mountain bike trails built by volunteers of the regionally-based Renegades Mountain Bike Club.  This outing is a great opportunity to meet Renegades volunteers and learn more about their contribution to Liberty Parks & Recreation’s trail network. REGISTRATION is required. Call Morgan Outdoors (845) 439-5507 by December 31st and let us know what level you prefer! Dress in layers with sturdy boots. Depending on trail conditions, ice grippers or snowshoes may be required. Snowshoes can be rented in advance at Morgan Outdoors. Call to reserve them. Co-sponsored by Renegades Mountain Bike Club and Morgan Outdoors, with support from Liberty Parks & Recreation. Outing will only be cancelled in extreme weather.
