After a two-month closure, the Greenburgh Nature Center, local leader in environmental education, reopened its doors this past Saturday.
The Greenburgh Nature Center was closed in October and November while undergoing a roof renovation of its Manor House. Despite the closure of its central hub for programs and events, the Nature Center continued to offer outreach programs to the community.
The Nature Center welcomed its visitors back with its annual Holiday Train Show on Saturday, made possible by the Yonkers Model Railroad Club. The Holiday Train Show presents, in miniature, a display of the steam, diesel, and electrical train operations that existed in the Eastern United States in the second half of the 20th century. The show will also run the weekends of December 9th and 10th and December 16th and 17th.
The Nature Center’s Manor House is gearing up for its 100th anniversary, which is certainly a reason to celebrate! “Our Manor House turns 100 years old in 2018. In preparation for this milestone, we started at the top with our roof restoration,” says Executive Director Margaret Tjimos-Goldberg.
The Nature Center reports that it has exciting things in store for 2018. “We will lead the community in sustainability by launching the largest residential food scrap recycling program in Westchester in January,” Goldberg says, “We look forward to continuing to provide one-of-a-kind animal and nature experiences for our community.”
