Although Hurricane Sandy has left us without power here in Chestnut Ridge, we’re still planning on having our open house and public program this coming Saturday! As we don’t have a working office phone, and our internet access is limited, you can get in touch with us if you need to via Daniel’s cell phone: 845-641-7089.
Hope to see you Saturday!
Ed pressing apples
Fall into Autumn.
Saturday, November 3rd. 11am – Noon.
307 Hungry Hollow Road, Chestnut Ridge NY 10977
The Nature Place will press our last apple cider of the season, complete with apple cider donuts and an autumn nature walk. Before we taste and smell the nectar of fall (apple cider!) we’ll get to use our eyes and ears on a nature walk through crunching leaves and disrobing trees. Then, using our wooden hand-cranked cider press, we’ll turn apples into cider, and drink up some of autumn’s bounty.
Nature Place Open House.
Be sure to stick around after our Fall into Autumn public program and attend our open house to learn more about The Nature Place Day Camp.
Parents, have you always wanted to spend a day (and a night) at camp? Now you can! Join us on an overnight adventure for families. Learn some of the fun and fundamentals of camping and canoeing at our Cedar Pond campsite on the shores of Lake Tiorati in Harriman State Park.
Our Family Camp Canoe Weekend will be Saturday and Sunday, July 14th and 15th. We’ll arrive at Cedar Pond Saturday at Noon, and leave Sunday around the same time. Registration for this event is limited. Give us a call if you’re interested.
We’re having an open house this coming Sunday, May 20th, from 1-4pm on our campus at the Green Meadow Waldorf School. Come say hi and learn more about The Nature Place!
Saturday, May 12th. 10am-3pm
Now parents can get a taste of camp too!
The Nature Place is beginning a series of events for the whole family with a day hike to the top of Stockbridge Mountain in Harriman State Park. We’ll find a cemetery, the foundation of an old cabin, a magnificent pine forest – where we’ll do still-hunting – Hippo Rock, a hiker’s shelter, a Native American rock shelter and more.
This hike would be appropriate for families with children ages 6 and up. Once you tell us you will be coming, we will email you directions on where to meet and a list of reminders, i.e. appropriate clothing and the like. This will be a hike, not a walk or stroll. Come prepared to sweat a little, to huff-and-puff a little, to have fun with your children, to experience, with your family, another world that we hope you will want to come back to and explore further.
This program is limited to 30 people. $10 per adult, $5 per child.
Our next open house is this coming Saturday, May 5th from 1-4pm. Come see us to learn more about The Nature Place!
