Join us for a Ribbon-Cutting and Celebration of Strawtown’s New Location at Marydell Faith & Life Center!
Strawtown Studio, Rockland County’s premier Nature, Art and Science program for youth, families, and community, founded in 2002 as an artist led initiative, is now a 501c3 not-for-profit. Founding Director and Artist Educator, Laurie Seeman, will host a press conference with her staff launching Strawtown’s expanded programming, designed to connect with a wider range of lower Hudson River Valley youth and communities.
This is a historical development, as Strawtown will uphold the long-held Marydell vision and commitment of connecting youth, families and community with the natural world, through its innovative teachings that are based upon environmental place-making, and personal development. Cultivating appreciation for the natural world, inspiring creative expression, and guiding environmental and community leadership for the future are key to the Strawtown’s mission.
Seeman is also this year’s recipient of the Rockland County Executive’s Outstanding Environmental Volunteer Award, serves on the Rockland County Task Force on Water Resources Management, and founded the Sparkill Creek Watershed Alliance.
Strawtown Studio, newly centered at Marydell Faith and Life Ctr. in Upper Nyack, is expanding and celebrating Nov. 9th!
This event signals the arrival of a new guidepost for nature-connected growing and living in Rockland County.
Parking is through the 3rd gate, down Larchdale Ave.
