GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Greenburgh Nature Center is again partnering with the Yonkers Model Railroad Club to present a nine-day holiday season show entitled “Trains – Your Ticket to the Great Outdoors.”
The exhibit opens on Saturday, Dec. 7 and runs through Sunday, Dec. 15. Weekday hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and weekend hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Center is closed on Fridays.
