River of Words Has New Home

Program will expand to Beacon

The Hudson Highlands Land Trust has handed off oversight of its Hudson Highlands River of Words environmental education program to the Beacon Institute, effective July 1. The institute hopes to expand the 10-year-old project to the Beacon and Newburgh school districts.

The Beacon Institute has launched a website and gallery at bire.org/row with student art and poetry, photos and videos, and more information.
