Urban Park Rangers: Wildlife Viewing

With the Urban Park Rangers as your guides, meet our many wild neighbors, from the salamanders of the forest floors to the bald eagles that soar our skies.

Please note: Based on New York State guidance for sports and recreation during COVID-19, we’ve put protocols into place to keep our participants and staff safe and healthy. We're asking everyone to help us stay safe:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Maintain six feet of physical distance between households
  • Wear a face covering
  • Wash your hands

Additionally, we encourage participants to bring their own hand sanitizer to our programs.  

Some programs may be modified, rescheduled or cancelled due to weather, health, or safety concerns.
