Our Broad-Leafed Woodlands

The Palisades Parks are Your Back Yard! Explore the beauty and wonder of the natural world. Learn about your local habitats and wildlife. Create with natural materials. Recharge in the relaxing rhythm of nature.
Meet new people. Bring family and friends. All ages welcome!
The Conservancy is pleased to invite you to the third in our collaborative art & science program series with Strawtown Studio, “Our Broad-Leafed Woodlands”.
The Lower Hudson Valley has been called one of the hardwood capitals of the world.
Join us at the Marydell Faith & Life Center in Nyack (640 N. Midland Ave.), for this program to learn tree identification and create art with leaves. Activities will include painting leaf silhouettes and embroidery on leaves. This is a hands-on program to better get to know our native tree species.
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.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Matt Shook at firstname.lastname@example.org or (845) 786-2701, ext 252.
