Saturday December 7 2019 1-4 PM
Join us on December 7 to celebrate the season! Once again this year we will have the Willows at Brandow Point open to the public. The event is free.
The historic 1788 house will be decorated with floral arrangements. Original art work of properties Greene Land Trust owns or manages will be on display and for sale.
Local author and illustrator, Jessica Loy will be doing a book signing. Jessica is an accomplished painter and graphic designer, as well as an environmentalist. She is a professor at the College of Saint Rose, where she teaches graphic design. Her books include:
- Weird & Wild Animal Facts
- When I Grow Up: A Young Person's Guide to Interesting and Unusual Occupations
- Follow the Trail: A Young Person's Guide to the Great Outdoors
As for her interest in writing Weird and Wild Animal Facts the author says, “I feel an urgency to get children involved in protecting our environment by giving them tools to explore the natural world around them.”
Of course there will be refreshments. We hope you will stop by to see this old house at its finest and to visit with us about our plans and events for the coming year.
