In celebration of Latino Conservation Week, Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park will hold a specialized event surrounding the New York Cubans. The New York Cubans were a Negro League Baseball team that played all over the country including Paterson's own Hinchliffe Stadium. There will be a kid's arts and crafts activity where children can make up their own poster advertising a baseball game. Stealing bases was a concept invented by the Negro Leagues. Visitors can also participate in a fun physics game where they try to steal bases, recording their distance, and running time to calculate their speed. These events will take place in Mary Ellen Kramer and Park staff will be there to give a talk about the New York Cuban's history. There will also a story reading at 1:00 and 2:00 in the Welcome Center. Park staff will read the baseball themed book "Who's On First?"
