Storming The Valley
Storming The Valley
June 2, 2019
Kick off summer and World Pride month with a picnic and hike at Storm King Art Center - a stunning 500 acre property housing over 100 art installations scattered through fields, hills, and woodlands.
** CLOSED - PAST TRIP **
We are launching our #TakePrideOutside campaign with an outing to the Hudson Valley. Join us for an afternoon relaxing in nature and walking amongst the shadows of the beautiful sculptures and woodlands of Storm King Art Center.
This is a laid back adventure, perfect for grabbing friends and escaping to the outdoors for the day. While we’ll chart out a suggested path to explore the grounds, you’ll be able to take it at your own pace, picnic on the lawns, sunbathe, or even rent a bike. Registration closes May 27th.
