Smithsonian's Institution's  Main Street - Waterways

digital story telling project


The Amsterdam Environmental Study Team has been looking at plastic pollution in the Capital Region of New York.  Plastic Pollution: Nurdles and the Coleco Connection is a video they produced, documenting their research into the source of micro-plastic pollution occurring in Mayfield Lake.  Mayfield Lake is a natural lake and part of the Great Sacandaga Lake watershed that feeds the Hudson River.  Like many forms of pollution, plastic does not tend to remain in one place, and when it's released into freshwater it can travel hundreds and thousand of miles, literally from Mayfield, New York to the Atlantic Ocean.

Cultural Hall Renovation Project

Here we grow again!

The SRC has embarked on a capital campaign to bring badly needed renovations to its cultural hall building, the original home of the Schoharie River Center and the Environmental Study Team.  The renovations will bring heating upgrades, restroom facilities and handicap accessibility to make the facility usable year round and able to support more programs for the public including square dancing, concerts, conferences and many other types of programs.




The SRC Cultural Hall was built in 1857 by local carpenter Boss Jones and is a classic federal style timber frame construction building with King Post Trusses.  Planned renovations include:


To kick this project off, we’ve received a grant from NYSCA for $50,000, leaving us with $70,000 more to raise. So, we are appealing for your help.
