This volunteer event will begin with an introduction to various habitats at the recent Bronx River/Soundview Park restoration by Kathleen McCarthy through a short walk and talk. Participants will then assist in the rebuilding of habitat by planting in wetlands or uplands, mulching areas where invasive plants threaten recent plantings, or by creating pollinator nesting sites. iLAND resident dancers will lead the group in movement that will draw from our individual and collective physical experiences of observing, walking, and working on the site. Afterwards, participants will discuss threats to urban wildlife and brainstorm ways to facilitate stewardship including the role the arts play in urban conservation.
