The Hudson River Museum led its last of its weeklong February winter-break sessions for children Friday, where junior docents led craft-making workshops on the Hudson River's great egrets, and children were treated to the show "The Sky Tonight: Wonders of the Winter Sky" in the attached Andrus Planetarium. Similar sessions are held during Spring Break and the December holidays. (Feb. 22, 2013)
