SUNY Ulster County Community College will host a re-dedication ceremony of the John Burroughs Hall on Friday, October 26 at 1 p.m.   The re-dedication ceremony also pays tribute to President Theodore Roosevelt, a close friend of Burroughs, in conjunction with New York City’s Museum of Natural History’s re-opening of the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall.
SUNY Ulster President Donald C. Katt will conduct the dedication ceremony outside Burroughs Hall.  SUNY Ulster Professor Robert Steuding and community advocate and John Burroughs Society member Gloria Lipton will give brief remarks on the Burroughs and Roosevelt’s contribution to raising awareness of our community’s natural resources. John Burroughs, the great naturalist and philosopher, lived from 1837 to 1921, mostly in Ulster County and the Hudson Valley.   
Burroughs Hall currently houses science and mathematics classrooms and Earth Science, biology and physics laboratories. The ceremony held on the Stone Ridge campus is open to the public.
