Program Description

Event Details

Join us for a hike and a bag lunch at the West Point Foundry Preserve in Cold Spring, the site of an immense 19th-century Ironworks that manufactured some of America’s first steam engines, locomotives, pipes for New York City’s water system, and cannons that helped win the Civil War.

As we hike trails that pass the remains of foundry buildings, we'll learn the story of the site’s contribution to the Industrial Revolution and the Civil War, as well as the land’s astonishing ecological renewal; an amazing natural landscape with marshland, bubbling brooks, streams and a lovely waterfall.

A non-refundable $5 fee is required at registration. *When registering, please specify sandwich choice: ham, turkey, chicken salad, tuna salad or fresh mozzarella and tomato. in SPECIAL NOTES section.
