Thank you to all the students, teachers, mentors and facilitators who participated in this year’s Rockland P.L.U.S. program and its culminating symposium at RCC on March 18th!

130 students from Clarkstown North, Hudson Valley P-Tech, Nanuet, Nyack, Pearl River, Spring Valley and Suffern High Schools gathered at RCC for the day-long program. They brought along the work they created in three sessions held previously at their schools – where they envisioned a sustainable approach to sites near their individual schools.

This program was free for all schools to participate thanks to support from the following sponsors:
Lead Sponsor: Suez Foundation   /   FedEx   /   Frank and Joanne Gumper
First Niagara Bank Foundation   /   Orange & Rockland    /   Rockland County
Plus: Inserra Supermarkets for food donations

Time to Schedule Your School’s
2016/2017 EARTH B.E.A.T!

GlobeRuner_Med3x4in (2) AYS

Fun, Hands-on Environmental Education

Schedule Earth B.E.A.T. at Your School or Camp Today

Earth B.E.A.T. engages students in a day of fun, interactive activities focused on local ecology, waste reduction, water and energy conservation.  By participating in these Eco-Stations, students build knowledge about their community and the human-nature connection. They make meaningful connections to class curriculum and the NYS learning standards and are inspired to take simple steps to protect the environment.

Earth B.E.A.T. provides our students with motivating, relevant, interactive experiences to deepen their understanding and respect for our natural resources, as well as their role in caring for the earth! …students have fun while learning important lessons!“

Say No To The Bag

 Say No to the Bag Campaign

Isn’t it time to stop using plastic bags once and then throwing them away? In fact, do we really need to use them at all? Most plastic bags are used once and then discarded. Yes, really!

So Maria Luisa Whittingham of Nyack is leading the charge to get people to simply pause…and ask:

As a merchant, employee, or volunteer in a retail setting: “Did you bring your own bag today?” If no,”Will you need a bag today?”

As a consumer: “I pledge to forego a bag and bring my own bag when shopping”

Sound like a simple and reasonable idea? Then sign this petition to let the world know…
