Wonderful Wetland
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.

Thanks to project leader Valerie Munson-Drohobycky, her daughters Alex and Eva, as well as Natalia Lewitinn, Madison Kinney, Kaylia Sorgie, Alayna Wian, and Cameron Wian, all of whom covered the industrial gray pedestals for the raised garden bed and sandbox with colorful painted flowers and a rainbow. They are such a delightful improvement! Be sure to admire their finished work next time you visit the Play Garden.

Young Daisies
Little Scouts Make a Big Contribution

As part of their journey as Daisy Scouts, a dedicated group of young green thumbs from the Schuylerville School grew and planted perennial daisies at the Park this week. Watch for these cheery flowers to pop out in the Wetland Terrace Bed and on the Lily Hill across the path.
