AWSMP at Olive Day 2018

Posted on: September 4th, 2018 by Brent Gotsch

AWSMP will be attend­ing this year’s Olive Day on Sep­tem­ber 8 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Lester Daivs Park located at 686 Wat­son Hol­low Road in West Shokan, NY (right next door to the Olive Town Hall). Olive Day is an annual event that cel­e­brates all the things that make the Town of Olive a spe­cial place to live. There will be food, live music, a vari­ety of ven­dors, local and regional orga­ni­za­tions with edu­ca­tional dis­plays, and activ­i­ties for chil­dren and fam­i­lies includ­ing the always pop­u­lar frog race!

AWSMP will have a table with pro­gram lit­er­a­ture as well as an edu­ca­tional dis­play. We will also be bring­ing our stream table. The stream table shows how water inter­acts with and shapes the land­scape around it. It also shows how human inter­ven­tion in streams can change how water flows and the shape and depth of the stream.

Stop on by to see the stream table in action, pick up some lit­er­a­ture and say hi. We look for­ward to see­ing you at this year’s Olive Day!

AWSMP Youth Educator Matt Savatgy uses the stream table to show youth how manipulation of the stream channel can cause changes in the surrounding landscape during Olive Day 2017.
