 Special thanks to Darryl Dumas, George Hodgson, Garrett O'Connor, and Bob Foote for getting our shed installed on site and giving our garden tools and lawn mower a proper home! 

  

 

Green Ribbon School team launched with Schuylerville Schools   

Grant awarded for pilot project  

 

We are delighted to announce a new initiative that will further our mission and encourage environmental sustainability and outdoor recreation at our nearest public school neighbor, the Schuylerville School District.  

 

The Community/Land Preservation and Planning Fund at The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region has awarded Hudson Crossing Park $5,000 to support the first year of this purposeful collaboration between the Park and the school community. Working together with students, teachers, staff, administrators and parents, the project will include the formation of project-specific committees that will help move forward the ideas of a "green ribbon school"- an eco-campus, outdoor learning, environmental literacy, and health and fitness (www.greenribbonschools.org).  

 

After many years of informal partnering, this new collaboration will include mutually-identified goals and an infrastructure of volunteers to make "green" things happen. Want more information? Email us at info@hudsoncrossingpark.org.
