<![CDATA[Central Park Tour: Hallett Nature Sanctuary and the Pond]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/07/27/central-park-tour-hallett-nature-sanctuary-and-the-pond http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/07/27/central-park-tour-hallett-nature-sanctuary-and-the-pond Date: July 27, 2016

Hallett Nature Sanctuary is the smallest of the park's three woodland landscapes. Closed to the public in 1934, the Hallett Nature Sanctuary remained mostly untouched until 2001, when Central Park Conservancy took up a more comprehensive program of restoration and maintenance. Now, visitors can use the rustic trail to view native plantings that attract birds and other wildlife. Join our guides for this exclusive tour of the Hallett Nature Sanctuary, open to visitors only on Central Park Conservancy guided tours and during limited open hours.

The tour route involves wood-chipped trails and some hills. The tour starts and ends in front of the José Martí statue (Central Park South at Sixth Avenue)

For weather cancellation and other ticket policies, please review the Central Park Conservancy policies carefully.

Groups of seven or more must schedule a custom tour three weeks in advance at tours@centralparknyc.org.

<![CDATA[Torrey Botanical Society Field Trip: Tour the Wilder Side of Marine Park]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/07/30/torrey-botanical-society-field-trip-tour-the-wilder-side-of-marine-park http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/07/30/torrey-botanical-society-field-trip-tour-the-wilder-side-of-marine-park Date: July 30, 2016

We will explore the “wilder” western side of the park. Marine Park is the largest city-owned park in Brooklyn at 798 acres. Over half of the park is comprised of coastal forest, grasslands, and salt marsh. Significant investment by NYC Parks and the US Army Corps of Engineers over the last decade have restored vital habitat to the eastern side of the park and to White Island, a man-made island in the mouth of Gerritsen Creek.

The western side of the park (133 acres) contains similarly important natural resources; however it remains highly-impacted and at risk of further degradation due to destructive uses. Maritime Shrubland and Successional Maritime Forest habitat, dominated by sumacs, black cherry, bayberry, and groundsel flourish in pockets and represent a unique forest type in New York City. Other sections of the site, however, are dominated by invasive species such as black locust, Asiatic bittersweet, phragmites, callery pear and mugwort.

The CityParks PuppetMobile presents the classic “Puss in Boots” tale, with a twist. Once upon a time there lived a young man named Ferguson Mundingle. Fergus has just the bare essentials in life – a roof over his head, the clothes on his back, and his ever faithful pet cat. One day when lamenting his poor lifestyle, Fergus is astounded when his cat stands up, begins talking and introduces himself as Puss. Puss reveals to Fergus that he is very intelligent and well traveled, and even has an idea to help Fergus improve his situation. With that in mind, Puss dons a snazzy pair of boots and sets off on an exciting magical journey. Despite his reputation as a sly trickster, Puss soon proves himself a caring friend to all, willing to help at any cost!

CityParks PuppetMobile, one of the only traveling puppet theaters in the country, brings Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre productions and puppet making workshops to all corners of the city, free of charge.

Traveling the five boroughs in a PuppetMobile equipped with a stage and staff of professional puppeteers, the CityParks PuppetMobile brings entertainment to 50,000 children and families each year. Performances are held in parks, playgrounds and recreation centers from May to October.

Each Sunset Wednesday, enjoy outdoor concerts by vibrant New York City musicians who will bring a pop sensibility to their performance on Wave Hill’s Great Lawn.

Based in the Bronx, saxophonist Libby Richman leads Libby & Co., an ensemble that plays original contemporary jazz. Her sound echoes many influences including classical, Latin, and current music. Libby has shared the stage with jazz luminaries Lou Donaldson, guitarist John Hart, Cameron Brown, Virginia Mayhew, and drummer Sylvia Cuenca. As a side musician she has performed with Leslie Gore, Martha Reeves, The Shirelles, the Earls, The Duprees, The Kit McClure Big Band, and The Guy Lombardo Orchestra. Joining Libby are Hiroshi Yamazaki (keyboard), Fred Weidenhammer(upright bass), and Alan Bates (drums). The concert includes the pop tunes “Happy” (Pharell Williams) and “Sunny” (Bobby Hebb), and the musical theater classic, “Tonight”, from West Side Story.

Visitors may bring a lawn chair and picnic during the performance.

Free with admission to the grounds.
