The Kimlin Cider Mill is located at 140 Cedar Avenue, on the east side of the road, just north of Kimlin Court.
This is our third year participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). The GBBC is an annual citizen science project run through the Cornell Lab of Ornithology enlisting folks all across the country to census resident birds that have made it through the winter time. This project is just one way for you to get involved in the ever-growing realm of citizen science and learn about birds while doing it! We will be surveying the grounds of the Mill every morning starting shortly after sunrise from Friday, February 14th through Monday, February 17th for about an hour each morning. We encourage volunteers to join us on any of these mornings as it is much easier to spot birds with multiple pairs of eyes! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a morning to come out, make sure to dress appropriately, wear sturdy shoes and bring your binoculars. For more information on the GBBC, check out http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc.
Yesterday we braved the wind and joined the Friends of Jackson House for the Walk For History across the Walkway Over The Hudson. It was a small but passionate group of people. We had a poster up explaining our successful “path to preservation,” which is something the Friends of Jackson House are looking to do for the Jackson House in Fishkill which is threatened with demolition. Unfortunately the Village of Fishkill does not have a historic commission like the Town of Poughkeepsie, even though they have a historic district.
Here are a few photos from the event:
Cider Mill Friends is joining Friends of Jackson House for the “Walk for History” across the Walkway Over The Hudson on November 24. Come walk to save our historic resources!
We are so happy about the popularity of this event! Over 100 people showed up to taste cider, tour the Mill, eat some food, and enjoy the fall weather. Thank you to all of our volunteers and also to the donors for the raffle items. A very successful event!
