Join us on September 23, at 4:30pm for the first Mariandale TreeHuggers Ball, as we celebrate trees at Mariandale and across the world in all their strength, diversity, and beauty.
This reception will take place in the Mariandale Center’s lovely courtyard with a Hudson River view, and end with an optional twilight, candle-lit Labyrinth walk.
The Mariandale Center will honor Bernice McCann, a strong and dedicated volunteer who leads in land project improvement at The Mariandale Center. She has helped our land, trees, gardens, and ecosystem thrive with her own hard work.
Jim Nordgren is the head of JN Land Trust Services in North Salem, NY. He helped the Dominican Sisters of Hope and Mariandale by submitting a land description and proposed management plan, and advised us on removal of invasive species. He is a true friend to the environment.
Live Music and More
The Treehuggers Ball features live music by Wind and the Why, an NYC-based indie folk band featuring Therese Anderberg and Emily Casey.
You can take in the views, light fare, and local seasonal beverages (think fall Hudson Valley!), vie for a tree-themed gift basket and surprises, and take a candlelit twilight Labyrinth Walk.
