NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

Creating Habitat Form and Function

Saturday, June 21, 2014

11:30 a.m.3:30 p.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

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.
