This Weekend In Parks
Join us this Saturday at Fort Totten for "Denizens of Darkness," as we explore the after-hours aerial world of bats, one of nature’s most misunderstood animals. We will observe bats hunting in their natural habitat and learn how they are able to find their prey in the dark. Meet at 8 p.m. at the fort entrance, north of the 212 Street and Cross Island Parkway intersection. For more information, call (718) 352-1769.
Come out to La Roca Community Garden this Saturday for the Peace and Justice Festival. Check out local hip-hop artists such as Rebel Diaz and more. All are welcome. The festivities begin at 4 p.m. at 160th Street and Elton Avenue. For more information, call (646) 250-4405.
Names like Putnam, DeKalb, Lafayette, and Kosciusko are part of our urban-built landscape. Who were they, and what role did they play here in the birth of our nation? Join the Rangers for a special history walk and talk at Fort Greene Park. Meet at the Visitor’s Center at 1 p.m. For more information, call (718) 722-3218.
This Sunday at Inwood Hill Park, Join the Urban Park Rangers for a day of birding.

Birding begins at the Inwood Hills Nature Center at 9 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. For more information, call 212-304-2365.
Dead trees are filled with life, and play a vital role in the forest ecosystem for bugs, herps and other living things. This Saturday, join the Urban Park Ranger naturalists for "Living Logs" at High Rock Park, and see the creatures and fungi that make living logs their home. Meet at the Urban Park Ranger Station at 3 p.m. For more information, call (718) 967-3542.
