On Saturday October 3rd from 6PM-9PM The Town of Union Vale's Conservation Advisory Council will be hosting "FOOD FOR THOUGHT" at Tymor Park.
There will be a screening of the short films "A Living River" and "Farmscape Ecology", written by Filmaker Jon Bowermaster.
"A Living River"- Despite its polluted reputation, the Hudson River is teeming with life. From the tiny Glass Eels to the massive 14 foot long Atlantic Sturgeon, a vital web of life defies decades of oppression. Organizations like Riverkeeper and New Yorks Department of Environmental Conservation use lessons learned from its past as a bustling commercial fishery to its present as a ecosystem in recovery in order to protect its future.
"Farmscape Ecology" - Farming is ever-evolving. Today, when we think about what’s to come next for farmers, a key question is, “How do we produce food and still maintain a livelihood for farmers, while respecting the needs of other organisms with which we share the land?” As part of the Applied Farmscape Ecology Research Collaborative, scientists and researchers examine that question by researching and monitoring soil, water, and wildlife to discover how farming and wildlife co-exist.
Come and enjoy the films and grab a bite to eat from Fanelli's Food Truck & bring your own blankets, chairs, wine or beer!!
