Judith Guttman, President of Parkway Village Historical Society, will be presenting a lecture on the history of Parkway Village, an area of Queens. The 35-acre co-op community was built in the late 1940s, originally intended to house staff members of the United Nations. While proposals to designate Parkway as a landmark were rejected at least twice — in 1997 and 2000 — by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission, it is now part of the National Register of Historic Places. “As a community struggling to survive and flourish in challenging economic times, it is gratifying for long-time Parkway residents like me to witness the official recognition of Parkway Village’s illustrious history,” said Guttman, “I’m proud to be a Villager.”

Dunes, Drawing and Dendrology is a new summer program, a thematic series of nature walks, talks, and art workshops, designed to encompass the various natural elements of Conference House Park.

Conference House Park is home to many diverse and unique plant and tree communities within its 265 acres. The communities range from tall maturing forest stands, young groves, open fields, pocket-forested wetlands, and wet woods. The park contains a rare maritime Northern Hackberry forest (due to high calcium levels from the high number of discarded oyster shells in the soil). There are many tree species at the southern and northern most portion of their growing range—true 'Mason-Dixon' line for trees species.

This educational Walk and Talk is a family-friendly program designed to increase the appreciation and understanding of the numerous tree and plant species found within the various forest types in the park.
