Lifespring: Saugerties Adult Learning Community is a Town of Saugerties sponsored lifetime learning institute. We offer a broad range of noncredit educational activities with no exams, no papers, and no pressure...just an opportunity to experience the benefits and joys of learning.

With membership comes the opportunity to explore and discuss a wide variety of thought-provoking subjects, to exchange ideas with your peers, and to meet new interesting and interested fellow learners.Since Lifespring is run by volunteers, members have the opportunity to use and expand skills through participating in committees and assuming responsibility for curriculum development, membership, and support activities. Our presenters are volunteers from our membership and the surrounding community.

Lifespring has two six-week semesters, winter presentations once a month from December to March, as well as special events throughout the year.

  Please consider becoming a member and having the opportunity to:      


  • stimulate your minds in new and  creative ways    
  • learn about topics that have been intriguing
  •  challenge ourselves in new areas
  • open new vistas in learning
  • discover new talents, skills, and interests
  • meet new people

For information about joining or volunteering to be a presenter (and learning how to submit a proposal for teaching a class), call us at 845 246 2800 ext. 452 or drop us a line at
