ANOTHER JEWEL OF THE HUDSON OPENS--O'HARA NATURE CENTER HAS AMAZING TRAILS
Release Date: September 23, 2012

Greenburgh residents who enjoy nature and hiking are lucky. The Old Croton Aqueduct, South County trail, Bronx River paths, Taxter Ridge park preserve, Harts Brook Park and Preserve, Glenville Woods & Greenburgh Nature Center are magnificant and beautiful properties.
 
Today, another jewel on the Hudson opened -- the O'Hara Nature Center. The center, which is located off of Mountain Road (Mountain Road is a road that connects to Taxter Road, E Irvington) has magnificant trails --connecting 400 acres of forested trails and ecosystems. When I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony this morning - I was stunned by the beauty of the property --it's a treasure! Please take a look at the new building and trails.
 
The new building, named for the O'Hara family (community leaders who lost their lives in a plane crash ), is a model of energy efficiency and green design (solar heating/cooling, rain water harvesting, thermal efficiency and reflexivity). The property and trails are spectacular. I encourage residents who enjoy nature to add this nature preserve to the list of trails you enjoy hiking on. You won't be disappointed.
 
Congratulations to the village of Irvington and the hundreds of volunteers and sponsors of the O'Hara Nature Center for their success. Generations to come will enjoy and explore the woods, will be educated about nature and the environment and will be inspired by the sustainable concepted used at the center.
