Chicory Naturalist's new digs!

At our brick-and-mortar we offer guides, gifts and gear for naturalists of all ages and stages, in addition to community events and educational programming. The community calendar includes free events from story time fro kids to game night for adults and a range of classes taught by local educators with a broad range of experience.

Our mission is to create a space for everyone, regardless of age, identity, or experience with nature education, to learn, connect, and nurture their interspecies & human relationships.

Are you a Hudson Valley-based maker with nature-themed wares to consign, or an educator with knowledge/skills to share? Please get in touch

Public health protocols:

  • Staff will be fully vaccinated. (Feel free to read about the significance of this decision within Chris's immediate family here.)
  • Masks will be optional when community transmission of COVID-19 is low in Ulster Co, and required at all other times.
  • Our space is outfitted with a high quality air filter appropriate to the size of the room and will be as well-ventilated as weather permits.
  • Workshops and other events will be limited to 15-20 people, depending on space needs.
  • The gathering space will only host in-person indoor events at times when community transmission of COVID-19 is low in Ulster Co, and events will be clearly advertised with whether they will shift online, move outside, or be postponed/cancelled in the case of higher numbers.
