Field Trips-- Philipsburg Manor

We went to the Green Corn Festival at Philipsburg Manor and explored the grounds, watched corn husk dolls being made, listened to a Native American storyteller, and collected feathers, leaves and other bits of nature for our growing collection...

Then we walked towards Tarrytown Lighthouse, and passed by this eagle statue, which originally graced Grand Central Terminal.

Unfortunately, due to construction, we couldn't get close... but we did see Kidd's Rock, a spot where legendary pirate Captain Kidd supposedly landed...

When we got home, we made lots of leaf rubbings.
