Volunteers Clean Up Shoreline

Volunteers cleaning up Hudson shoreline.

Looking for opportunities to become involved and make a difference? There are three great events coming up this month where you can show your support for our valley and its irreplaceable environment.

On Saturday morning, April 22, join us at Scenic Hudson's Long Dock Park in Beacon for our annual Earth Day Cleanup. You can show your love for Mother Earth by helping to clean the shoreline and remove invasive plants at one of our most popular parks. New this year we'll offer seining and art programs for the kids. So bring the family—we'll have projects for all ages!

March for Science

Then on Saturday afternoon, April 22, celebrate science in Poughkeepsie at the March for Science for the Hudson Valley and Science Teach-in, one of over 400 similar marches happening worldwide on Earth Day. The event also features a "Science Teach-in" at Waryas Park where scientists and other experts—including Scenic Hudson scientist Nava Tabak—will be available to answer your questions about the natural world. Email ScienceMarchHV@gmail.com for additional details.
