Seeing the Forest Through the Trees

The Village of Scarsdale Conservation Advisory Council, in collaboration with staff and Friends of Scarsdale Parks, has undertaken a review of our local tree law. Following issuance of their 2013 Initial Report and subsequent updates in 2014 and 2015, proposed modifications to the Village Code have been advanced and will be reviewed and discussed at a Joint Meeting of the Village Board's Law and Sustainability Committees on September 12th at 6:30 PM. Interested community members are encouraged to attend the meeting.

Eclipse 2017

One of the few times one could see more with dark sunglasses on than without them: Solar Eclipse 2017. If you missed your chance to see it, there's another opportunity in the not too distant future. Yes, back by popular demand, it's Total Solar Eclipse 2024, and local viewing promises to be far better than 2017. If you head just a little north in NY at that time, NASA reports that you could be totally in the Path of Totality, dudes and dudettes. So, put it on your calendar: April 08, 2024. Oh, and get your certified viewing glasses ahead of time!
