Iroquois Thanksgiving, Saving Views, Gorge Beauty

Episode 63, recorded on Dec. 11, 2013 of Walk in the Park. This time, we take another brief look at the approach of the emerald ash borer, which threatens to destroy virtually all of our ash trees. Next we enjoy the Iroquois Thanksgiving Address or “The Words that Come before All Else,” as recited by Mohawk storyteller Kay Olan, and illustrated with artwork by Melanie Printup Hope; produced for the Iroquois Indian Museum in Howes Cave, NY. (Pleas consider helping the Iroquois Indian Museum with a donation, as they receive no government support.)

Next we learn about Saving Ithaca’s Views, a project of the Town of Ithaca Conservation Board, and the statewide award they received for this initiative.

Finally, we enjoy three “Park Minute” videos: 1) “A Tour of Ithaca’s Views,” 2) “Galaxy Eddy” in Buttermilk Falls State Park, and 3) “Frosty Ithaca Falls.”

This episode of Walk in the Park will air today on Ithaca’s public access cable TV channel 13 (or 97.3) at 10:30 a.m., and finally on Tuesday, December 17, at 8:00 p.m. Or you can watch it right here anytime!
