In collaboration with the Village of Haverstraw, Strawtown Studio, Columbia Climate School Lamont-Doherty, and Pratt School of Architecture, Haverstraw Brick Museum presents THE HAVERSTRAW EARTHDAY ARTS & SCIENCE FESTIVAL, SATURDAY APRIL 23, 12:00-5:00 PM.
Taking place in Emeline Park on the shores of a Hudson River estuary, this event aims to deepen engagement on climate change issues through family fun-filled kid’s activities featuring art-based hands-on learning around three environmental themes: Water, Earth, and the Natural Sciences. Sponsored by Orange & Rockland and Rockland County Tourism, this outdoor Festival promises a safe, interactive learning journey experience for children and adults alike, so they may be inspired to preserve and protect the environment for future generations.
“The brickyards of Haverstraw fundamentally changed the landscape along the shoreline of the Hudson River. Because of this, the Village of Haverstraw is an important place to recognize the impact of industry on the environment as part of our legacy as a community.”Richard Sena, President of the Haverstraw Brick Museum.

ABOUT THE HAVERSTRAW BRICK MUSEUM
The Haverstraw Brick Museum is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to preserving the cultural and historical past of the town of Haverstraw and the vibrant brick industry which created it. Our mandate is to collect, preserve, and interpret the objects, structures, or historical sites built with bricks from Rockland County and the surrounding area. We provide an essential learning resource for students, historians, and educators wishing to understand the rich cultural traditions that formed the river towns along the Hudson River today through research and documentation.
