"Our goal for Earth Day is to create an opportunity for local merchants, farms, community members and business owners alike to celebrate our home, our area, and our Earth. The local Market will highlight products produced here in the Adirondacks, and bring more awareness of the abundance found right at your doorstep," said Jill Schweizer, director of marketing for the Golden Arrow and organizer of the event.
"Our staff really works hard to come up with new innovative ways to make the resort green and to educate guests of all ages. Children are the best motivators for change," said Jenn Holderied, owner of the Golden Arrow. "This event is great because it brings children, our community, guests, and adults together in an entertaining fun environment. It's learning through play and what better way to learn?"
