Annual Yule Log Tradition

Join Rensselaer Youth Outdoors at the Dyken Pond Environmental Education Center on Sunday, December 15th from 1:00-3:30 pm as we honor the Winter Solstice by spending a day outdoors and enjoying the Annual Yule Log Tradition.

Help us search for the hidden yule log, spend some time around the community campfire, make a craft, collect some greens, and relax during this busy time of year. A wise owl will tell Joseph Bruchac’s story “How Grandmother Spider Stole The Sun”. Light refreshments will be available, or bring your own to share.

This is a free program, so tell your family and friends.

To pre-register for the program and for more information, contact the Dyken Pond Environmental Education Center at or 518-658-2055.

Please note that our weather conditions at 1700 ft may differ from where you live. Please check the outgoing messages at 518-658-2055 for updated conditions.

December Mindful Nature Walk

Sunday, December 15, 9 am – 12 pm — Poestenkill Community Forest, 200 Legenbauer Rd, Averill Park (in East Poestenkill)

We will combine forest bathing, walking, and present-centered awareness to relieve stress and get inspired. Just as squirrels gather and store nuts for winter food, we can cultivate our own warmth and sustenance through our connection to land and each other. Ages 12 and up. $5 – $10 suggested donation goes directly to support conservation on the Rensselaer Plateau. Questions? Reach out to Molly: or 978-239-8105.
