Welcome to Woodchuck Lodge
“These hills fathered and mothered me. I am blood of their blood and bone of their bone, and why should I not go back to them in my last years?”
John Burroughs, Literary Naturalist, 1910
The fourth in a series of six programs to be held the first Saturday of each month from the porch at the Lodge will be held August 2 when Roxbury Historian Anthony Liberatore and Dan Underwood team up to talk about local history. Anthony and Lynette Liberatore will sell and sign their pictorial history book, "Around Roxbury." The program is free, and starts at 1 p.m.
This program is sponsored by our friends at Claude Lutz Insurance of Prattsville.
Come early, or stick around after the presentation and take a tour of the Lodge. Or visit Burroughs Memorial Field for some quiet reflection in the blue hills of Burroughs' boyhood.

This is "The Walk," written by John Jacobson (fiddler on the tune), inspired by John Burroughs' advice that the walk you take today, should be the walk you took yesterday, and the one you take tomorrow, as nature is ever changing, and there is always somethig new to see. . .
Thanks to Brett Barry for the audio, and to Fred Margulies for syncing the amateur video with the professionally recorded sound.
