This year's sustainability celebration on June 9 at the Rosendale Recreation Center unveils an important area development: the Rosendale trestle over the Rondout, which connects the rail trail from Gardiner to Kingston. Attendees can learn about the expanding trail network in the Hudson Valley, as well as connect with local food producers, energy-saving programs, and community resources, including a sign up for free home energy assessments with RUPCO Green Jobs/Green NY. In addition to exhibits on local agriculture, renewable energy, water conservation, and alternative transportation, there will be performances by Rosendale's Redwing Blackbird Theater, a petting zoo hosted by the local 4-H group, instrument-making with the Rosendale marching band for kids, food from the Rosendale Café and Market Market, and much more.
