Join the Sarah Lawrence Center for the Urban River at Beczak for this December River Talk titled, “The Mouth of the Croton River with Scott Craven.

All of the major historical themes of the Hudson Valley can be found at the mouth of the Croton River; the glacial origins, the Lenape, the American Revolution, the Dutch, various species of birds, and much more. Scott will teach participants how to see these things “differently” to recognize these special characteristics.

Back by popular demand, Scott Craven returns to RiverTalks after his 2-part series last year on “Lighthouses of the Hudson”. Scott speaks extensively about a variety of Hudson River topics and teaches local history to teachers at the Ossining Teachers Center. He is a thirty-year member of the Ossining Police Department.

RiverTalks are sponsored by Yonkers Paddling & Rowing Club and the Sarah Lawrence Center for the Urban River at Beczak. December RiverTalks are curated by Lee Reiser, an avid kayaker, board member of Yonkers Paddling & Rowing Club and Atlantic Divison Director of Recreation and Promotion for the American Canoe Association.

A $5 donation is suggested. Ample parking available on site and is a short walk from the MetroNorth. For more information, call (914) 377-1900 or visit centerfortheurbanriver.org.
