Our extensive education program called "MT. KISCO -THE LONG JOURNEY" attempts to make the past come alive through a unique educational program, which highlights and explains historical elements we see everyday as we travel around our village. As part of our education portfolio, we begin with an exciting introductory presentation that provides a foundation of information about our land, water, and nature, along with our amazing human history emphasizing the inter-dependencies of these features.
