Dr. Sara Ahmed, founder of the Living Water Museum, focused on India's water heritage will speak at Water Discover Center

PRESS RELEASE, Contact: Carol O’Beirne, carol.obeirne@gmail.com – 845-586-6622
Release: July 15, 2022
Catskill Water Discovery Center Presents Water Stories: History, Cooperation, Conflict and Challenges
August 10, 5:30 pm
The Catskill Water Discovery Center presents a program of talk and music: Water Stories: History, Cooperation, Conflict and Challenges on Wednesday, August 10, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. at its headquarters at 669 County Hwy 38, Arkville, NY, geographically located at the center of New York City’s water supply system. The program is free and open to the public.  It will also be available by Zoom (link)
Featured speaker is Dr. Sara Ahmed, founder of the Living Waters Museum, a virtual museum focused on India’s water heritage. She is also one of the three Vice Presidents of the Global Network of Water Museums. Dr. Ahmed’s talk: “Water Stories: History, Cooperation, Conflict and Challenges” will center on the importance of storytelling as a means to inform and educate about the myriad issues related to the need for, and threats to, clean, fresh water for all.
Joining Dr. Ahmed on the program will be world-renowned cellist Michael Fitzpatrick who will perform a 25 minute program of melodically flowing and water-themed selections as well as his own INVOCATION OF THE EARTH, which he composed inside the largest cave in the world.
Marcia Brewster, a retired United Nations Senior Officer for Water Resources in the Sustainable Development Division, UN Headquarters, and a member of the Catskill Water Discovery Center’s Advisory Council, will moderate the program.
SARA AHMED is currently an Adjunct Professor at the Indian Institute for Science Education and Research, Pune. Dr. Ahmed has nearly 30 years of applied research experience on water, livelihoods and social equity. She has been actively engaged in teaching and mentoring young development professionals in India, managing large and complex regional research portfolios on water, food security and climate change with Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Asia, and advising a range of development organizations and water networks globally. Sara holds a PhD in Environmental Sociology from the University of Cambridge and is currently on the board of WaterAid, India and Wetlands International South Asia. She has published extensively on gender and water governance and her last co-edited book is entitled, Diverting the Flow: Gender Equity and Water in South Asia (2012). Sara and Marcia served together on the Gender and Water Alliance Steering Committee in the Netherlands in the early 2000s.
 
MICHAEL FITZPATRICK has performed as soloist at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Hollywood Bowl, United States Capitol West Lawn, United Nations, and around the globe, prompting Sir George Martin, Producer of The Beatles, to state: “Fitzpatrick is beyond a marvelous talent – and I could not agree with him more: music is the only thing that can change the world.”
A virtuoso Cellist and 5-String Electric Cellist, he is the recipient of The Prince Charles Award for Musical Excellence conferred by His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales. For the past 25 years, he has musically tone for His Holiness’ Public Talks and Teachings around the planet. His Holiness stated: “The emotion induced by Michael Fitzpatrick’s music is so powerful, it seems almost verbalized. His sound is Clear Light.”  He is the Co-Music Director of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards.
 
THE CATSKILL WATER DISCOVERY CENTER, originally chartered as the Catskill Watershed Partnership Museum, was initially established through the historic 1997 Memorandum of Agreement that put into practice numerous provisions that ensure the protection and viability of New York City’s water supply. Its mission is to educate people of all ages about the precious nature of, and threats to our planet’s most vital resource – pure water. It has been operating since 2020 with an anchor exhibit entitled: “Of Rivers and Reservoirs: New York City’s Water Story” and annually features children’s art and poetry about water resources, created by school children in New York City and its Watershed communities. Construction of interpretive trails in its 33-acre nature preserve bordering the East Branch of the Delaware River is scheduled for the summer of 2023.

Help Keep Wildlife Safe While Viewing
There’s still time to get outdoors and observe birds that spend their winters in New York, like snowy owls. Unfortunately, some birders, in their enthusiasm to photograph the birds up close, may approach the birds and flush them—cause them to fly. This can deplete the birds’ energy reserves, and in extreme cases, can cause death. It is better to observe wildlife in a manner that is safe for both you and wildlife.
Some ways to respect wildlife and others around you:
  • View wildlife from a distance using binoculars.
  • Stay on trails.
  • Only enter private property if you have permission.
  • Park in designated spots or completely off the road, out of travel lanes.
Check out more wildlife watching tips.
 
New Exhibit at the Pine Hill Community Center
 
Join us for the opening of our exhibition by Phoenicia-based artist Margaret Braun. 

Margaret’s ceramics make nods to familiar household forms and her own history as a renowned baker and cake decorator—but they are playfully non-functional. She has continued her exploration of abstract forms in space with her works on paper. All together, it’s an exhibition filled with delightful shape, color and warmth for these late winter days.

TRANSITION CATSKILLS ANNOUNCES ITS ANNUAL SEED SWAP
Ongoing, April 1st to June 1st – Seed Swap
at all eleven Delaware County Public Libraries


Every year, Transition Catskills donates seeds to the libraries, kicking off the annual Seed Swap. Gardeners can pick up something new to try in their garden, and bring in their leftover seeds to share with others.

We provide open-pollinated varieties so that at the end of the season, gardeners can save the seeds for next year. (Hybrid seeds will not reproduce true-to-type.) We also prefer organic seeds because the plants have been grown without harmful pesticides, and therefore we're not contributing to the poisoning of the landscape. We always include some heirloom varieties to keep the chain going, handed down from generation to generation.

ANNUAL KENTUCKY DERBY JUBILLE sponsored by THE MARK PROJECT will be held ….
 
On Saturday, May 7th at 4pm
Margaretville Telephone Company’s Community Hall, 61 Academy Street, Margaretville.
 
The annual “Run for the Roses” is among just a handful of historic and popular American sporting events; it’s a celebration of Spring, horse racing and fashion— especially fashionable and stunning hats! This year the MARK Project hopes you’ll join us for all the excitement at a spectacular food filled, fancy-hat-wearing, friendly wagering, energy packed jubilee in the MTC Community Room.
 
The food will be lavish with samplings from local restaurants, area farmers, and hard-to-find delights from all over our region—it’s hands-down one of the best dining events of the year!
 
And we haven’t forgotten the “fashionistas” among you — Over the years the Derby has become just as much about the fashion as the racing, as it’s Derby day fashion that everyone is talking about long after the winning horse and jockey are crowned. An over-the-top, chic, or preppy hat is the key to any Derby attire and MARK will honor that tradition with a Special Prize and bragging rights for a year for the best hat.
 
Need a hat? We’ve got you covered as Bloom Fabric on Main Street Margaretville will be hosting a hat decorating workshop. For more information, contact Bloom Fabric directly at 845-586-6000. And we’ll be listing more locations to purchase a hat soon on our website: www.markproject.org.
 
Best hat contest, auction, ample wagering opportunities-- and they’re off! Daily Racing form stats delivered by Glen Pedersen, and the spirited Horse auction will all take place prior to the race being televised live on the big screen at MTC.
We don’t think there’s a better spot in the Catskills to celebrate Spring, share the excitement with your neighbors and friends, and to watch the Derby all while supporting a valuable community organization. Limited Seating. Tickets are $50 per person and include a complimentary Catskill Julep, food and music. For more information call 845-586-3500

TOWN OF ANDES offers all the info you need to know about Paddling on the NYCDEP RESERVOIRS.
 
THE NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION HAS OPENED THE PEPACTON RESERVOIR, AS WELL AS THE CANNONSVILLE, SCHOHARIE AND NEVERSINK RESERVOIRS TO RECREATIONAL BOATING.  KAYAKS, CANOES, ARE ALLOWED ON THESE NYC DRINKING WATER RESERVOIRS DURING THE PADDLING SEASON.
 
Enjoy the solitude of having this pristine 15+ mile long “lake” to yourself, or paddle with a group of friends and share the scenery!  You may spy a bald eagle or two, beaver, deer, maybe even a bear.
 
Boat owners may put their boats into the reservoirs after having them steam cleaned by a vendor approved by the NYC DEP.  The paddler must also obtain a free DEP Access Permit. Boats must be washed each time they are removed from reservoir property, but may be stored for free for the season, or multiple days, at designated boat launches.  
 
Boat rentals are available at the reservoir for those who don’t own a boat but would like to try it out. Boat launches in Andes are at the Shavertown Bridge and on Rt 30 near Perch Lake Rd.
The Pepacton Paddling brochure tells it all!

“Living in the Catskills demands a response to our landscape and environment. Art is a way for us not only to find our place in the natural world, but also to call attention to its overwhelming beauty, its power, and its heartbreaking fragility in the 21st Century, often in stark contrast to our resource-consuming, virtual-reality, inward-looking world”.

TOWN OF ANDES offers all the info you need to know about Paddling on the NYCDEP RESERVOIRS.
 
THE NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION HAS OPENED THE PEPACTON RESERVOIR, AS WELL AS THE CANNONSVILLE, SCHOHARIE AND NEVERSINK RESERVOIRS TO RECREATIONAL BOATING.  KAYAKS, CANOES, ARE ALLOWED ON THESE NYC DRINKING WATER RESERVOIRS DURING THE PADDLING SEASON.
 
Enjoy the solitude of having this pristine 15+ mile long “lake” to yourself, or paddle with a group of friends and share the scenery!  You may spy a bald eagle or two, beaver, deer, maybe even a bear.
 
Boat owners may put their boats into the reservoirs after having them steam cleaned by a vendor approved by the NYC DEP.  The paddler must also obtain a free DEP Access Permit. Boats must be washed each time they are removed from reservoir property, but may be stored for free for the season, or multiple days, at designated boat launches.  
 
Boat rentals are available at the reservoir for those who don’t own a boat but would like to try it out. Boat launches in Andes are at the Shavertown Bridge and on Rt 30 near Perch Lake Rd.
The Pepacton Paddling brochure tells it all!
