School Forest Day Committee to Hold Think and Drink Benefit Nov. 9

The Garrison School’s Environmental Education Committee is planning a festive  educational cocktail party this Saturday, Nov. 9, at 5:30 p.m. “This is a fundraiser and an ‘awareness-raiser,’” said event planner and Garrison mom Christine Foertsch. “You don’t always think ‘education’ when you think ‘cocktail party,’ but we’ll provide the perfect blend at our first annual Think and Drink!”
The educational component of the evening includes an overview of the importance of environmental education in our schools and in our homes and a brief review of the GUFS School Forest Day. Renowned environmental writer and Garrison resident Andrew Revkin will give a talk on the interface between environmental education and technology. After all that “thinking,” guests can enjoy one-of-a-kind, woodland inspired cocktails expertly mixed by Garrison mom and botanist Patricia Mulligan.
