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.
