Arbor Day observance

The Cornwall Conservation Advisory Council and the Town of Cornwall will be planting a Scarlet Oak tree on the grounds of Sands Ring Homestead on April 21 at 4 p.m. as part of the Town’s annual observance of Arbor Day.

Carla Castillo, chair of the Cornwall Conservation Advisory Council will offer introductions and Supervisor Richard Randazzo will read an official Arbor Day Proclamation in observance of the day.

The tree is being planted in honor of Bernard Sussman, a veteran, a long-time CCAC member who worked closely with fellow CCAC members to protect the Moodna Creek,  and long-time curator of the Narrowsburg Ten Mile River Boy Scout Camp Museum. A few words will be said regarding Sussman’s contributions to Cornwall and his work on the CCAC.
