Water­shed Detec­tives After­school Pro­gram

The Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram is excit­ed to announce that Matt Savat­gy and edu­ca­tion staff from Cor­nell Coop­er­a­tive Exten­sion of Ulster Coun­ty will be offer­ing his Water­shed Detec­tives Club as an in-per­son, after­school pro­gram at the Ashokan Cen­ter in Olive­bridge, Tues­day after­noons, begin­ning Octo­ber 13th (see above ad). We will be spend­ing our time doing fun, “hands-on” sci­ence and nature activ­i­ties while learn­ing about our local water­shed and streams.

We have put togeth­er an approved, New York State com­pli­ant safe­ty plan for this pro­gram that includes spe­cial pre­cau­tions for COVID-19. Our trained staff will be con­duct­ing the pro­gram using phys­i­cal dis­tanc­ing meth­ods. Face masks are required when we are indoors and when we are with­in 6 feet of each oth­er out-of-doors.

The pro­gram is free of charge to Onte­o­ra School Dis­trict stu­dents, but space is very lim­it­ed and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. To reg­is­ter for the pro­gram, con­tact Lin­da Gonnel­la at lg457@cornell.edu. Please con­tact Matt Savat­gy if you have any ques­tions about the pro­gram at mjs593@cornell.edu or at (845)-657‑7383.
