– Friends of Taconic State Park invites elementary and middle school aged children and their parents to an “Earth Day Celebration” where they will participate in a hands-on, interactive program to learn about important environmental issues on Saturday, April 22nd from 1pm to 3pm at Park headquarters, 253 State Route 344, Copake Falls. The event is the second of four children’s nature and history programs offered by the group this year, thanks to a legislative grant secured for the Friends by Assembly member Didi Barrett.
Led by educators from the Taconic Outdoor Education Center, the program will be a fun series of games and activities designed to help children understand the importance of environmental quality in maintaining optimal habitat for wildlife and the impact that the degradation of the environment has on wildlife populations. The role that source point pollution and carbon footprint have on environmental quality will be highlighted so that children can learn ways to have a positive impact on the environment.
