Saturday, September 28, 2019


9:30 am – 12 pm


For families with children ages 7 & up*

*This family program is recommended for all ages, but may be of special interest to children over the age of seven years old. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18.


$10 Parking Fee


Come learn to identify the trees and leaves of Minnewaska State Park Preserve with Elizabeth Axley, Student Conservation Association/AmeriCorps member. Elizabeth will lead you around the beautiful forests and vistas of the Beacon Hill trail loop. On this approximately two mile hike, Elizabeth will explain the best methods for identifying trees, using their autumn leaves. Discover whether any of Minnewaska’s leaves have begun to turn color, and identify any tree species that display this remarkable ecological phenomenon. Then, learn how to distinguish seemingly identical leaf pairs and master the identification of locally common trees. Finally, explore the phenology of leaf-turn and leaf-fall, and learn about the incredibly precise timing of these events and why they occur.

Elements: A Multi Sensory Exploration of Art and Music with Compass Arts in Beacon, NY

BEACON – Elements: A Multi Sensory Exploration of Art & Music (Ages 3-5) @ Compass Arts

Sensory Exploration at Compass Arts


Fridays: September 27 to December 20, 2019


10 – 11:30 am


For ages 3 – 5



Discounts available



For the second year running, Romina and Gina are excited to continue this STEAM-based experience on Friday mornings for 3-5 year olds. Using a thematic approach, students will be guided in magical explorations of music and art through stories, music, movement, art-making, and natural materials. STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) concepts will be interwoven throughout the arts experiences, giving children a multifaceted understanding of the world around them that is developmentally on target for their age.


This year, we are offering a one-hour open play extension before class! Students enrolled in this option will arrive at 9 am to participate in open ended, thoughtfully curated play stations, and enjoy a “fruit cafe” snack area. At 9:45 am we will wrap up and prepare for the arrival of the rest of the class at 10 am. This extension is only available to students registered in Elements and is an additional $10 a week.





Taught by Romina Robinson and Gina Samardge
