Discuss foods that can be genetically modified with high rates of applications. This will help participants who may be interested in avoiding GMO crops to be smart shoppers. The goal of this non-biased program is to help consumers gain resources on how to continue their personal education and/or advocate for themselves.

Special Lecture – “Getting to Green: Saving

Nature: A Bipartisan Solution”
Tuesday, March 14
7:30pm at the Cornwall Presbyterian Fellowship Hall
222 Hudson St., Cornwall-on-Hudson

Join us to hear Frederic C. Rich discuss his timely book on how the American environmental movement lost its way and how it can get back on track. His work is a rousing call for conservatives to reconnect with their long tradition of support for conservation and for the green movement to adopt the reforms necessary to restore bipartisan support for the environmental agenda. As Rand Wentworth, President, Land Trust Alliance says: “My fellow environmental leaders may not agree with every word, but we ignore this book at our peril. With a career at the highest levels of global capitalism and as a greatly respected environmental leader, Fred Rich is in a unique position to bring the right and left together to find practical solutions to ourenvironmental challenges.”

Admission: $8 Not-yet-Members. Museum Members: $5
