February 14-17, 2014 – Great Backyard Bird Count

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 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

Debrief: November 24, 2013 – Walk for History

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:
