<![CDATA[Field Trip Destination: The South Pole at Wards Point, Staten Island]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/11/12/field-trip-destination-the-south-pole-at-wards-point-staten-island http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/11/12/field-trip-destination-the-south-pole-at-wards-point-staten-island Date: November 12, 2018

Explore New York City's and New York State's southernmost point: The "South Pole" at Wards Point within Conference House Park. The geographical southern tip of the State overlooks the confluences of the Raritan Bay, Raritan River, and Arthur Kill water bodies.

The three miles of nearby natural shoreline are a beach comber’s paradise. Shells, rocks, and stones of every shape and size can be found here. Just a short distance to the north of the South Pole are the park’s clay colored bluffs where you can view city’s only exposed portion of the terminal moraine.

Not to be missed are the park’s other attractions: acres of woodland, four galleries, and five historic houses!

Start time: 7:00 am

The Tottenville Historical Society invites you to visit Alice’s Garden, an arrangement of rare and unique architectural terra cotta ornaments. The garden is dedicated to the artisans of the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co., Tottenville, who crafted them more than 100 years ago.

The sculptured pieces, displayed with native plants in a natural landscape on the side lawn of the Biddle House, 70 Satterlee Street, exemplify the artistry of the firm’s talented but, for the most part, anonymous workforce.

Alice’s Garden is free and open to the public during regular park hours. Additional information about the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co. is available inside the H.H. Biddle House (open Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment)

The garden is made available with funding support from The Staten Island Foundation, The Nicotra Foundation, and members of the Tottenville Historical Society.

Explore New York City's and New York State's southernmost point: The "South Pole" at Wards Point within Conference House Park. The geographical southern tip of the State overlooks the confluences of the Raritan Bay, Raritan River, and Arthur Kill water bodies.

The three miles of nearby natural shoreline are a beach comber’s paradise. Shells, rocks, and stones of every shape and size can be found here. Just a short distance to the north of the South Pole are the park’s clay colored bluffs where you can view city’s only exposed portion of the terminal moraine.

Not to be missed are the park’s other attractions: acres of woodland, four galleries, and five historic houses!

Just a short distance to the north of the South Pole are the park’s clay colored bluffs where you can view city’s only exposed portion of the terminal moraine.

The Tottenville Historical Society invites you to visit Alice’s Garden, an arrangement of rare and unique architectural terra cotta ornaments. The garden is dedicated to the artisans of the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co., Tottenville, who crafted them more than 100 years ago.

The sculptured pieces, displayed with native plants in a natural landscape on the side lawn of the Biddle House, 70 Satterlee Street, exemplify the artistry of the firm’s talented but, for the most part, anonymous workforce.

Alice’s Garden is free and open to the public during regular park hours. Additional information about the Atlantic Terra Cotta Co. is available inside the H.H. Biddle House (open Saturdays from noon to 3:00 p.m. or by appointment)

The garden is made available with funding support from The Staten Island Foundation, The Nicotra Foundation, and members of the Tottenville Historical Society.

It's the end of the nesting season for the Piping Plovers! Since 1996, NYC Parks has been managing the nesting grounds of federally endangered Piping Plovers on the Rockaway Peninsula. The peninsula has proven to be an important habitat for several threatened and endangered species of plants and wildlife and it is important, now more than ever, to continue to protect and preserve their habitat.

Join the NYC Parks Stewardship Team as we care for the habitat and nesting grounds of these endangered shorebirds and plants. Volunteers will be removing the fencing that protects the nesting area so that it is not damaged over the winter.

Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, warm layers, and clothing that can get dirty. Please bring your own water bottle.

Please note: Space is limited and registration is required. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.

Explore New York City's and New York State's southernmost point: The "South Pole" at Wards Point within Conference House Park. The geographical southern tip of the State overlooks the confluences of the Raritan Bay, Raritan River, and Arthur Kill water bodies.

The three miles of nearby natural shoreline are a beach comber’s paradise. Shells, rocks, and stones of every shape and size can be found here. Just a short distance to the north of the South Pole are the park’s clay colored bluffs where you can view city’s only exposed portion of the terminal moraine.

Not to be missed are the park’s other attractions: acres of woodland, four galleries, and five historic houses!
