Hello and thanks for joining us at People’s Climate March across the Hudson- Co hosted by The Sierra Club, March On! New Paltz, and March On! New York (formerly Women’s March NY) We’d love for you to encourage all your friends and family to come by sending them the event link.
The weather looks good, just a slight chance of rain, but cloudy and warm so dress accordingly.
The Walkway is 1.28 miles EACH WAY. There are two places to stop along the way, one very close at the elevator to the park below, and the next in the center at the flagpole. If you feel tired, there is no shame in ducking in either of these places and rejoining us on the return trip.
If you look directly to your right at 2 p.m. while we are marching, you will see the Clearwater leaving its berth for a public sail! So exciting!
Marshall Training! If you volunteered to marshall, or
want to (we can use a few more people) We are meeting at New Paltz
Village Hall, 25 Plattekill, at 630 on Friday for training.
Videographer! Is anyone a videographer? We have one great one. We need a couple more.
The Flotilla of kayaks and canoes will launch from the HIGHLAND side at 2 p.m.

The School Seedling project sent us 30 songbird-attracting NY shrubs.
White cedar, silky dogwood, and highbush cranberry! We will be giving
them away to families day of along with instructions.
They will need to be planted pretty quickly after we give them away.
