EAGLET NEST: Children's activities with Teatown throughout the day.
Family Art: Create nature art with Strawtown Art & Garden Studio!
Create an artful model of the wide bays area of the Hudson River! In this workshop we will make art that celebrates the recent protection of this important eagle habitat from an industrial desalination plant.
The art begins with a wooden base then we add sand collected from both shores of the bays, colorful map shapes, and paper collage. This wide bays area includes Tappan Zee, Croton and Haverstraw Bays, and it is a feeding and wintering ground for the bald eagle, and the nursery for the Hudson River. Haverstraw Bay is rated “irreplaceable habitat”, and local citizens and electeds fought to protect it and won! This beautiful art piece will remind us all to be caretakers of the river!
