Bethel Woods Center for the Arts inspires, educates, and empowers individuals through the arts and humanities by presenting a diverse selection of culturally-rich performances, popular artists, and community and educational programming.  Located 90 miles from New York City at the site of the 1969 Woodstock festival in Bethel, NY, the lush 800-acre campus includes a Pavilion Stage amphitheater with seating for 15,000, an intimate 440-seat indoor Event Gallery, the award-winning Museum at Bethel Woods, and a Conservatory for arts education programming.

Through the in-depth study and exhibition of the social, political, and cultural events of the 1960s, as well as the preservation of the historic site of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, Bethel Woods educates individuals about the issues and lessons of the decade while inspiring a new generation to contribute positively to the world around them.

The Bethel Woods campus celebrates the natural beauty, cherished traditions and bountiful products of Sullivan County. Over 2,000 trees have been planted on the rolling grounds where trails and clusters of buildings open up to vistas of the surrounding landscape. The architecture expresses the familiar forms of the region’s barns and rural structures. Strong cedar posts and timber construction, copper roofs, stone from local quarries and native plantings convey a sense of belonging to the countryside and make visitors feel welcome and neighbors feel at home.

The not-for-profit organization relies on the generous support of individuals, corporations, and foundations to develop and sustain programs that improve the quality of life in the region and beyond.

Hallmark projects include studies of the impact of acid rain on forests and freshwater ecosystems, unraveling the relationship between biodiversity loss and emerging infectious diseases, and tracking how climate change influences the spread of invasive species.

The Cary Institute’s Goals:

Advance understanding about the structure and function of ecological systems.
Provide the scientific knowledge needed to solve environmental problems.
Enhance the ecological literacy of students, decision makers, and the public.

HV HorsePlay partners people with horses for positive well-being, improved mental health, and fun!
Let our herd help you reach your personal and professional goals.  All activities take place on-the-ground. There is no riding involved.

HorsePlay activities bring individuals, families and groups together with one or more horses for structured experiences. Participants learn about their communication patterns, approaches to problem-solving, relationship styles and more. The horses are always honest - and no matter who you are - they'll tell it like it is! With this information, our clients have the opportunity to explore new ways and means of engaging . . . . not just with the horses but with those outside of the arena (parents, peers, colleagues, siblings, spouses, and others.)
