To kick off the City Nature Challenge, join NYC Parks staff on a two-hour hike around Van Cortlandt Park to view and make iNaturalist observations of the wonderfully diverse spring ephemerals in the western side of the park.

We will start the hike at the riding stables before first exploring parts of the Northwest Forest and then heading south toward Van Cortlandt Lake.

Please bring water and a snack, as well as your smartphone or camera! If you do not know how to use iNaturalist, arrive 15 minutes early and we will show you how!

Register online.
