Hudson Highlands Museum Holds Large Festival for Earth Day

Hundreds of people turned out to support the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum’s annual Earth Day Celebration in Cornwall on Saturday.

The annual event was suspended in 2019 due to COVID and this was its first time returning since the pandemic. All money that was raised went to supporting their educational programs and animal ambassadors.

The celebration was jam packed with fun activities for children and families. On tap were hay rides, food trucks, a vendor market, live animals, a performance by the Young Naturalist Preschool, live music by The Gioias, storytelling by Jonathan Kruk, a community art project, nature play in Grasshopper Grove, and interactive activities with the museum’s educators.

Local businesses provided prizes to be raffled off. The Shops at Jones Farms, located just up the road from the museum, generously donated the use of their wagon for the hay rides.

The event was attended by first-time visitors, frequent visitors, volunteers, guest educators, and donors.

The Hudson Highlands Nature Museum is located at 120 Muser Drive in Cornwall, which is across from 174 Angola Road. It is a nonprofit center for nature with a focus on nature education and nature play. They host collections of native animals and natural habitats.
