Join us to celebrate the opening of BIRDLINK, a new temporary public artwork supporting urban birds with native plants. Representatives from NYC Audubon and Urban Park Rangers will be on hand to speak about the project.

BIRDLINK is an interactive habitat sculpture whose mission is to support migratory birds by inserting native plant systems throughout the urban and suburban corridors through which they travel. There, people can learn about the challenges facing bird populations, and enjoy more space. BIRDLINK attracts the wild birds that reside or migrate through the city with native plants at the empty lower and middle canopy levels. It responds to community interests, highlights the shared the urban ecosystem and bridge cultural differences through the universal of birds. This park in a busy, economically and culturally diverse neighborhood also hosts the African M’Finda Kalunda Garden and the Chinese Hua Mei Bird Garden for exotic caged songbirds.
