Wildlife viewing is a perfect activity for any age.

New York City is home to an amazing abundance of wildlife.  From falcons and salamanders, to deer and seals, wildlife viewing opportunities exist year-round in all of our parks and beaches.  May through June is mating and egg-laying season; this will be your best opportunity to view up close the mysterious horseshoe crab.

Our Rangers will guide you to the best wildlife viewing spots in New York City.
