The hike and trail run usually cover approximately five miles. Headlamps are required in every season. Dress for the weather and trail conditions. Bring water and a snack if you think you'll need it. No reservation is required.

Join the Village Community Boathouse for Community Rowing in traditional Whitehall gigs, captained by experienced New York Harbor coxswains (captains).

The Village Community Boathouse offers free community rowing on Sundays starting at noon and on Tuesdays starting 5:30 p.m., through November 12, 2017.

Community rowing is free and open to all; no experience or reservations necessary.

Please note: It is very important that you arrive between noon and 12:30 p.m., as the Village Community Boathouse pair their boats, coxswains, and rowers by 12:30. Boats leave right after for the afternoon. In some cases, the Villiage Community Boathouse will have additional boats leaving at a later time but the chances to get out on a boat then are much slimmer. Please check the Villiage Community Boathouse's social media feeds on Facebook or Twitter for possible last-minute changes due to weather or other circumstances. Or, call (212) 229-2059.

About Free Community Rowing
The Community Rows are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours.Most of these rows have mixed crews with those that have never been on the river before and some old hands. Visit the Village Community Boathouse's website for more information and photos!

The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours.Most of these rows have mixed crews with those that have never been on the river before and some old hands.

Join the Stewardship Team for an evening of horseshoe crab monitoring! Since 2013, NYC Parks has been monitoring horseshoe crab spawning activity along the restored sandy beach at Coney Island Creek. We'll be walking the beach to count the number of crabs present and tagging them to keep track of how many we've already seen as part of NYC Parks' ongoing effort to monitor their activity. This exciting work contributes to a long-term research study that is helping us to better understand and protect the horseshoe crabs that live in our urban waters. Come and take a closer look at our city’s valuable natural resources! Please come dressed in layers, clothes that can get dirty, and waterproof boots or sneakers, and bring your own water bottle. All volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Join us for an exhibit at Conference House Park, Lucy Wilner: Us and Them, Birds at the Intersection of Natural and Man-made Worlds, on display through July 23.

Wilner’s paintings explore the realms of imagination evoked by today’s new ecological and trans-species consciousness. Far from naturalistic, they present symbolic relationships, especially those between human beings, our histories, tools, and environments, and the natural world.

Gallery hours: Monday - Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. / Closed holidays / Free admission

Opening reception: Saturday, May 13, 2017 / 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
