Saratoga 2056 Time Capsule
SMARTACUS plans to inter the Saratoga 2056 Time Capsule on Mount McGregor on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, the day after our next Presidential Election. The capsule is to be disinterred, opened and celebrated on Election Day 2056.
To mark our completion of this link to future generations, we will invite the Saratoga community to an event on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at which we celebrate the contents of the Capsule produced by the young people of Saratoga County and honor the lives and legacies of leaders, innovators and artists in Upstate New York's creative economy.
Among the items to be produced by SMARTACUS teams:
The series of articles written for Simply Saratoga magazine on the future of the Palmertown Range. These include Visioning the Palmertown Range Trail, Visioning Mount McGregor, and Visioning Grant Cottage.
All interviews and content produced in our Legacies and Visioning Saratogaseries, including profiles of leaders in open-space and historic preservation identified in consultation with OPRHP, the Open Space Institute, and Saratoga PLAN.
The script of Darwin's Edge with student-produced illustrations and video.
We welcome ideas from the Saratoga community on additional items to be placed in the Capsule. We plan a crowdfunding campaign to support the Capsule's construction.
