New York, NY
Join hundreds of folks from the tri-state area and celebrate Father’s Day and the Summer Solstice at Catskill Animal Sanctuary’s 10th Annual Shindig, on Saturday, June 18, noon-6pm.
Each year, crowds flock to the Hudson Valley’s beloved haven for rescued horses and farm animals for guided tours, hay rides, music, auctions, great vegetarian grub, and a chance to get “up close and personal” with happy animals. New this year: guests will explore the farm along The Compassion Trail, completing educational activities and winning prizes. Mystic Ritual, The Whispering Tree, and Marc Black will provide rockin’ tunes for the day.
Catskill Animal Sanctuary is especially thrilled to have special guest Zoe Weil, President of the Institute for Humane Education and author of Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and Meaningful Life; and Above All, Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times. As head of the Institute for Humane Education, Zoe Weil oversees the only comprehensive humane education graduate program in the U.S., covering the interconnectedness of human rights, animal protection, and environmental preservation.
Admission is free, and each visitor will be invited to support Catskill Animal Sanctuary’s emergency rescue and education programs by becoming a member. Guests who join will receive one of Kathy Stevens’ widely acclaimed books: Where the Blind Horse Sings: Love and Healing at an Animal Sanctuary and Animal Camp: Lessons in Love and Hope From Rescued Farm Animals.
NYC Charter Bus is available – capacity is limited, so buy your seats now at http://catskillanimal...
The event will be held rain or shine. See you there!
