The O'Hara Nature Center is a spectacular nature center located off of Mountain Road. This should be a great event
Irvington Theater spotlights EarthIrvington, a two-day festival coming to O’Hara Nature Center this October 1-2 As autumn approaches and Mother Nature transitions into one of her most glorious seasons, Irvington Theater is proud to once again partner with with the Village’s esteemed O’Hara Nature Center for an outdoor event that uses the arts to promote practical, hyperlocal solutions for protecting the planet. EarthIrvington is a two-day festival featuring musical performances, film screenings and forums, sustainable eats, and outdoor activities for the whole family. The fun begins on Friday, October 1 with an open-air screening of Wasted! The Story of Food Waste (2017) from Executive Producer Anthony Bourdain (who also narrates) following a Q&A with the documentary’s director, Nari Kye, and a panel of leaders from Westchester County organizations whose missions reflect a commitment to sustainability. Come for the Emmy Award-winning film, stay for the locavore fare from nearby eateries!The outdoor festivities continue on Saturday, October 2 with guided tours of the Nature Center’s 400+ acres of forested trails, “Ask the Expert” tables, and hands-on workshops designed to empower families with the knowledge and tools to combat a global challenge locally. The festival concludes later that afternoon with a righteously irreverent performance from Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir, a storied group of satirists and self-identified urban activists who use theater of protest, spectacle, and song to fight for climate justice. “Reverend Billy is zany and energetic enough to hold the attention of those he’s preaching to... long enough for them to consider his crusade” (The New York Times).EarthIrvington will take place October 1 and 2 at the O’Hara Nature Center, located at 170 Mountain Road, Irvington, NY 10533. Parking is available, but carpooling is encouraged.
