Thanks to All Who Participated in the Rockland P.L.U.S. Symposium  

Unfortunately, due to the impending snow, students and mentors who came together to exchange ideas at this year’s Rockland P.L.U.S. culminating symposium at RCC on March 20th only had very limited time together. To see some photographs from this year’s event and read more about this wonderful program

Time to Schedule 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!“

March 25, 2015 — “Legislature Passes Resolution Urging Voluntary Elimination of Single Use Plastic Shopping Bags “Say No to the Bag” Campaign Initiated by Nyack Retailer — Read more about this step in the right direction…

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…
