One of the quiet delights of Andes is the extraordinary Wednesday night tradition, the Andes Round Table. Founded in 1994, the Andes Roundtable has met most Wednesday evenings at the Hunting Tavern, a historic tavern in the heart of the village, owned by the Andes Society for History and Culture. For a couple of bucks an evening (for coffee mostly), you can listen to an thought-provoking speaker and join in on a robust, thoughtful conversation afterwards. These tend to be really intriguing evenings — but with lots of energy and laughter.
Andes Roundtable – Wed., July 29, 7 pm at The Hunting Tavern –Molly Marquand is a botanist, native plant gardener, and small flower farmer living in the western Catskills. Her presentation will take viewers through some of the biggest threats to the natural communities of the Catskills. Her presentation will take viewers through some of the biggest threats to the natural communities of the Catskills and what you do to bolster biodiversity in your own garden or woods.
You can stay up on what’s coming up on the Andes First Community News Page on Facebook — and can ask there to be added to their mailing list. (Their home website has some great history but we’re not sure if the email address on it is still the best way to catch them.) Or you can just show up.
They’re really special.
