Join NYC Parks on a tour of Tibbetts Brook as it journeys from stream, lake, sewer, and wetland through Van Cortlandt Park. Learn about plans to restore the historic wetlands and reconnect Tibbetts Brook to the Harlem River.

You’ll travel back in time, exploring the Brook’s ecology and discuss how restoring these habitats and removing flow from the sewer system can positively impact water quality, biodiversity, natural resources, and public access.
