Earth Day ‘24 on the Mountain Top

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 4/12/24 | 4/12/24

May 4th, 10:30am-1:30pm

Mountain Top Library, Tannersville

Once again, the mountaintop community, visitors and people from the environs beyond are invited to celebrate Earth Day, on May 4th at the Mountain Top Library (Main Street/Route 23A) in Tannersville, from 10:30am-1:30pm. 

Earth Day ‘24 will celebrate our unique mountaintop environment with informative displays for children and adults, a student art show, a wildlife demonstration with raptors and snakes, games, plantings, giveaways, presentations, trail guides, and gardening advice/materials. Exhibits and presentations will take place throughout the day. 

We encourage children and adults to join us to learn about the mountaintop’s history, environment and beauty, which will enhance our appreciation of the remarkable gift we’ve been given. 

The event celebrates and explores our unique history. Located inside the Catskill Forest Preserve and the Catskill Park, we are part of the protected Schoharie Watershed. Our extraordinary beauty is reflected in the works of the Hudson River School of Artists dating back to the 19th Century. This beauty has carried us right into the 21st Century as a place to visit and enjoy. From puzzles to poetry…from plant seeds to composting…to decorating Rip’s Magical Garden, Earth Day ‘24 will explore both our future and the environment that we all share. From flora and Garden Design to fauna - including Raptors, owls, and a variety of forest critters – preserving and protecting our environmental habitat - a jewel of Air, Wind, and Water!

During the event we will provide information and encourage participants to join in two added events scheduled later on. 

  1. The annual Trail/Stream Clean-up will take place two weeks later – Saturday, May 18th from 10 AM to Noon at Rip Van Winkle Park; and, 

  2. The NY State Birding Competition on June 1st. This event will take place at the Mountaintop Arboretum; participants will explore the Arboretum Trail sighting a broad variety of birds in migration. 8 AM – Noon. 

We hope you’ll join us – bring your friends, family and neighbors of all ages – there will be lots of things for everyone. (And who doesn’t love a bake sale, proceeds of which will be donated to the Mountain Top Library?)
