Families Explore Cattails and More
Last month Madeleine DeManche, Skidmore Class of 2010, led a very successful family program on wetlands. It was the culmination of her independent study on the pocket wetland at Hudson Crossing Park. Young and old took a close look at floating duckweed, sought out dragonflies, and created miniature models of wetlands.
Our thanks go out to Ms. DeManche, and we look forward to offering more programming like this for children and families as part of our Sunday Afternoon in the Park series. Visit our website to see a calendar of upcoming events.
