Our community is engaged in cocurricular and curricular sustainability activities.The students, staff, and faculty of Bard College work together to engage in initiatives—both on and off campus—that reflect the College’s sustainability mission. From the hamlet of Annandale-on-Hudson, in the Town of Red Hook, we connect with the nearby villages of Red Hook, Rhinebeck, and Tivoli, the City of Kingston, and the greater Hudson Valley. Our view of sustainability looks not only toward green initiatives but also to a larger view of the health and wellness of our community. Visit the Wellness Calendar.
Helping Amphibians Cross the Road
How did the amphibian cross the road? With help from local volunteers! Our roads run through salamander and frog habitats here in the Hudson Valley, so volunteers from Bard College, Red Hook, Rhinebeck, and other neighboring towns help migrating amphibians cross safely. Volunteers receive training in how to identify and move these amphibians as they make their way to woodland pools to breed on rainy spring nights. Email [email protected] to join the team.
