Our Broad-Leafed Woodlands

11:00am - 1:30pm | Marydell Faith & Life Center, Nyack

The Lower Hudson Valley has been called one of the hardwood capitals of the world. The tree canopy makes this area so beautiful, with its great variety of broad leaves of many different colors and shapes. Join us for this program and learn tree identification through creating art with leaf shapes.  Offered activities will include painting leaf silhouettes and embroidery on leaves. This is a time to work hands-on with the different leaf shapes towards getting to know our trees better.

The Marydell woodlands site has been one of Strawtown’s outdoor classrooms for many years. It features a small, fresh water creek, cool air breezes, and is nestled into the base of Hook Mountain. Featured trees/leaves: American Beech, Sycamore, Oaks, and Maples

This program is free and open to all ages.  All art materials and tools are provided.  Feel free to bring a snack or lunch.  Be sure to wear clothing and footwear appropriate for hiking in the woods.

To Register: Contact Matt Shook at shookm@pipc.org or (845) 786-2701, ext 252. Register early as the program fills up quickly!
