The bags are made of Non-Woven Polypropylene (NWPP), a fabric that is recyclable, non-toxic, non-allergenic, and machine washable. They can be purchased at Feed the Birds, 326 South Riverside Avenue, Croton-on-Hudson from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
“One of the reasons we opened Feed the Birds in Croton was the area’s strong interest in nature-related activities,” said store owner Rob Armanini. “Being the local nature shop, one of the obvious things for us to do was join the Arboretum. We quickly realized they are funded entirely by donations, and the importance of those donations became even more evident when several storms caused some significant damage last fall. We wanted to help, in an on-going capacity and we’re proud to be supporting Croton's very own natural treasure."
Check out our new full-color trail map, which you can download and print from here. In the near future we're going to use the map on outdoor trail signs at the Arboretum.
Thanks to the generosity and hard work of six local homeowners, the board and residents of the Ossining Campwoods Grounds, our tireless tour organizers, docents and other volunteers, the Croton Arboretum’s 16th Annual Garden Tour and Plant Sale was a big success. We raised $3,300 in much-need funds to maintain the 20+ acres of wetlands and woods at the Jane E. Lytle Memorial Arboretum. Thanks also to everyone who bought tickets to see the beautiful gardens. We hope to see you again next year.
