Sustainability Walk and Showcase
The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rockland County will host an inaugural Sustainability Walk and Showcase this fall. The goal of the event is to encourage people to enjoy nature and gain a greater understanding about our environment and how to protect it while also providing a fun day of activities. The walk will take place during the vibrant leaf-peeping season. Residents from across Rockland are invited to join the festivities and walk the beautiful trail around the Lake, which is normally only accessible to Clarkstown residents. The event will feature ten educational stations where adults and kids can learn about birds, bugs, and biodiversity. The station topics will include Invasive Plants, Insects and Ticks, Native Plants and Forest Trees, Animals around the Lake, Water Quality and Algae Blooms, Water Plants, Water Birds, as well as a Background and History of the Lake. There will be a scavenger hunt and other activities for kids and booths where parents can learn about environmentally friendly products and services. Each family that registers by October 1st will receive a swag bag filled with giveaways from the event’s Platinum Sponsors SUEZ and Orange & Rockland.
