  • The Sunset Switch


    2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

    As the day ends, certain animals wind down for bed, while others are just beginning to stir. Come learn who wakes up at sunset as their daytime counterparts are bedding down. We’ll read The Sunset Switch and meet a couple of our animal ambassadors
    featured in this children’s story.

  • Skull-tastic!


    1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    They say you can’t tell a book by its cover but can you tell a skull by its teeth?! What’s the difference between predator and prey? We’ll examine mammal, reptile and bird skulls in this fascinating program to see what lies beneath the furs, scales and feathers.

  • Sitting on PURPOSE


    10:00 am - 11:30 am

    Lynn Trotta of Sagefire Institute returns with the ancient practice of Sit Spot - a form of daily meditation that takes a person out of their head and puts them into their senses. In Sit Spot, nature becomes the Master and draws forth the Master within.
    Participants will be given the inspiration and key elements to integrating this life changing practice into their everyday living so they may experience a greater sense of peace, feel more connected to the natural world than they ever have before, feel healthier and discover a profound sense of gratitude. Please dress appropriately for the weather and provide for your personal level of comfort. Bring a blanket or camp chair to sit on as most of the program will occur outdoors.

  • Peabody Preserve Outdoor Classroom

    October 15, 2014

    The Public Schools of the Tarrytowns will unveil an innovative new facility for all the students in the school district – a classroom without walls on the Hudson River in Sleepy Hollow. The 40 acre site, the long ago home of the Etruscan brick factory, has been largely unused except for two playing fields and a parking lot at one end of the parcel, until now. Thanks to the efforts of local parents, environmentalists and donors, the site has been lovingly transformed into the Peabody Preserve Outdoor Classroom (PPOC) with a new trail system accessing many points of interest and opportunities for scholarship.
