Earth Day Celebration
We always celebrate Earth Day in some way at the resort. In years past we honored the Earth by inviting the local kindergarten & preschool classes to participate in a free Earth Day program. Two of our Green-Minded crew organized & put on a huge event that included all kinds of sustainable crafts for the kids to participate in including planting mini versions of our green roof & creating windmills. We have also had a farmers market right in our top parking lot, it was free for local farmers and merchants to set up shop and sell their good. Locals and our guests loved it! Check our event calendar for dates.
Lake Placid’s Village Clean-Up Day
The Golden Arrow was proud to have a team of employees participate in Lake Placid’s annual Village Clean-Up Day. Don’t worry; the staff did not labor for nothing. They were rewarded by being paid for their voluntarily donated time!
Green Tourism Council
Formation of a Green Tourism Council for NY State. We diligently worked with our state officials, including DEC, EPA, NYSERDA, I LOVE NY & the Governor’s office in conjunction with NYSHTA towards the creation of a Green Tourism Council for NY State. Currently there is not a centralized resource for businesses in the tourism industry to turn to when looking for help on how to “green” their business. One of the goals of this council would be to achieve that & make it easy for businesses to operate more sustainably. We are pleased to report we had amazing success, but unfortunately due to funding pulled and a new Governor instated we had to halt work on this project. We hope that some time in the near future we will resume work on forming this council.
