Important Winter Storm-Related Service Changes

New York City parks are now open. We continue to urge caution in parks under wintry conditions: parks paths can be slippery, snow cover can cover frozen lakes and bodies of water, and branches may have fallen. If you see a fallen branch call 311.

Some recreation centers will open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today with limited staffing.

For more information, please visit our Storm Update page.

Observe and identify the diverse, native wildflowers and some common invasive plants along Cass Gallagher Nature Trail.  

Van Cortlandt Park’s Northwest Woods contains some of the best examples of Oak-Tulip Tree Forests in New York City; we should see wild geranium, Solomon’s seal, and possibly wild pinks in bloom.  We will keep an eye out for white-tailed deer and woodland birds, as well! Helen will also describe the Natural Areas Conservancy’s Ecological Assessment Project which was piloted in Van Cortlandt Park last year.

Registration is required.
