June 9th “Small Steps, Big Benefits” Environmental Event

On June 9, the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rockland County will host an environmental event “Small Steps, Big Benefits” from 9a to 1p at Dominican College. The purpose of the morning is to present concrete steps that residents can take to make their home environment more sustainable, save money, and reduce their carbon footprint. Throughout the morning, non-profit organizations and for-profit vendors will exhibit materials and there will be thirteen workshops to address four themes:

  • Landscapes and Yards
  • Water Quality and Conservation
  • Energy in the Home
  • Recycling

This event is geared towards adults. It is free of charge. For more details and to register, please visit

If you Walk or Bike, Save This Date:
Tues June 12 at Nyack High School

The Nyack area has a reputation as walk-able and bike-friendly community. But it can still be a challenging place to walk or ride a bicycle.
There were 52 vehicular crashes that involved pedestrians or cyclists in the Nyack School District from 2015-2017. That count doesn’t include two fatalities in the last four months – including one just last week at the intersection of Broadway and Main Street in Nyack.
The Greater Nyack Bike/Walk Master Plan, a six month study of the streets, sidewalks, bike lanes, and cross walks in the Nyack river villages and Valley Cottage, will present its findings and recommendations on Tuesday, June 12 at 7p in the Nyack High School auditorium.
Please join us at this public event. What you will hear affects all of us!
