Come take a tour of Randall’s Island’s Wildflower Meadow! Stretching along the East River near the iconic Hell Gate bridge—just across the river from Astoria Park— the Wildflower Meadow is home to an array of native and ornamental plants that provide food and shelter for bees, butterflies, birds, and other wildlife. We’ll walk and talk about plants that are blooming, including fragrant and pollinator-friendly species. We’ll also observe up-close the diversity of pollinators and other insects that dine in the meadow.

All ages are welcome and no fee is required! We will be meeting at the Randall's Island side of the 103rd St. footbridge. A Randall's Island Park Alliance staff member will be on site approximately 10 minutes prior to the tour to greet you.
