Freshkills Park Research and Ecology presentation with Dr. Cait Field
Saturday, March 18, 2017
2:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
At 2,200 acres, Freshkills Park will be the largest park developed park in New York City in more than 100 years, and the largest conversion of a former landfill to a public park in the country.
Dr. Cait Field, the Freshkills Park Manager for Science and Research Development, will discuss the ecology of the site, both before and during landfill operations, since the landfill's closing, and current and future ecological developments.
