Let's Green Beacon!
We are a coalition of residents and organizations who are fostering sustainability, conservation, and environmental initiatives in the City of Beacon.
April is National Science Month! Join our friends at Howland Library for Fun with Science, a city-wide event up and down Main Street the last two weeks of April. There are many environmental exhibits and demonstrations for children of all ages, such as interactive watershed sensors, stone and crystal hardness comparisons, fossil exploration, and landscape architecture design discussion. Pick up an itinerary of events at Howland Public Library and learn more at Fun with Science.
April 29th marks Trump’s 100th day in the White House; it's also the People's Climate March on Washington! March On! New Paltz is organizing a sister march nearby so that the day’s efforts can be as intersectional and inclusive of the communities most impacted by climate change as possible. Join us in solidarity with the millions that will be flooding the streets of D.C. in the name of climate justice for all. More info and sign up here.
