Historic Cherry Hill will develop a public programming initiative entitled "Outdoor Life," focusing on the museum's landscape to attract new audiences and better connect the museum with the local Albany community. The museum will create interactive and relevant learning experiences linking history, agriculture, and nature in four program components: a summer camp for families and children, a garden program for teens, a community event focusing on pets, and a garden lecture geared towards landscape and social history enthusiasts. Community groups and residents will participate in program development, which will create lasting partnerships and make the museum more responsive to community needs, resulting in dynamic and relevant programming.
