The Grafton Inn is on Route 2 about a mile east of the Town of Grafton’s village green, and just west of Grafton Elementary School. From Routes 2 and 66 in Troy, go about 15 miles east on Rte 2.
Nancy Heaslip deals with a wide variety of wildlife in Rensselaer County and in the Capital Region as a biologist with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. She will tell us how some of the animals that are regularly seen in the vicinity of the Dyken Pond Center are doing, such as moose and bear, and will speak about some of the management challenges these animals present.
After dinner, the agenda for the annual meeting includes a vote for new terms for directors, a financial report, a summary of the past year’s activities and accomplishments, and our speaker. The annual meeting is an opportunity to meet the Directors and other Friends members. The Friends’ Directors look forward to hearing from the people who care about Dyken Pond Center.
