The creation of a Sing Sing Historic Prison Museum on the banks of the Hudson in Ossining has long been talked about.  The concept is being revived among those who care about Sing Sing’s unique position in the history of the American penal system.  Others are interested in development of the museum because of its tremendous national and international potential as a significant tourist attraction for New York’s Hudson Valley. Find out how you can support this important project by donating or attending a fundraising event on June 13 at the Ossining Heritage Center!

Farewell, Pete

Farewell, Pete

In the midst of this cold, cold winter, we are warmed by the memory of Pete Seeger and his music.  Pete instilled in all of us a love of the Hudson River that will never die.  He passed it on to us and to generations of children who will always understand and cherish it because of trips on the Clearwater and the songs they learned to sing with heart and soul. Thank you, Pete.  Your spirit will be here with the people of this Valley as long as the river flows both ways.

Winter is a wonderful time to dig out your binoculars and cameras and point them skyward, through the bare trees and out to the river! Saw Mill Audubon Society has a great lineup of programs, some of which are listed on our calendar, but all of which are listed online here. Teatown’s annual Eagle Fest (see below) is coming up on Saturday, February 8. And to be inspired by some great Hudson bird watching photos, take a look at this wonderful shot of eagles on ice, taken by Bonnie Talluto.
