Kids (up to age 10) can have fun & practice their skills by reading aloud to JJ, an adorable licensed therapy dog. This popular program is hosted by Doris Nielsen, a therapy dog trainer & OutLOUD board member. JJ is gentle, and she's a very good listener! Since June 22 is the Greenbelt Nature Center’s birthday, be sure to wish the building a happy birthday while you’re here.

This program is sponsored by an encore grant from Staten Island Arts. For more information, visit www.statenislandoutloud.org

<![CDATA[Rooftop Films Presents: Pick of the Litter]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/08/23/rooftop-films-presents-pick-of-the-litter http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/08/23/rooftop-films-presents-pick-of-the-litter Date: August 23, 2018

Bring your dog to a sneak preview of this new Sundance documentary!

The film

"Pick of the Litter" follows a litter of puppies from the moment they’re born and begin their quest to become guide dogs for the blind. Cameras follow these pups through an intense two-year odyssey as they train to become dogs whose ultimate responsibility is to protect their blind partners from harm. Along the way, these remarkable animals rely on a community of dedicated individuals who train them to do amazing, life-changing things in the service of their human. The stakes are high and not every dog can make the cut. Only the best of the best. The pick of the litter. Courtesy of Sundance Selects.

<![CDATA[Annual Events: Halloween Harvest Festival]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/10/27/annual-events-halloween-harvest-festival http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/10/27/annual-events-halloween-harvest-festival Date: October 27, 2018

Presented in partnership with Konfederasyon Nasyonal Vodouyizan Ayisyen (K.N.V.A)

The final event of the 2018 season is our beloved Halloween Harvest Festival, which, this year, is inspired by Fet Gede, the Haitian Festival of the Ancestors. Vibrant cultural performance and activities will be provided by the New York chapter of Konfederasyon Nasyonal Vodouyizan Ayisyen (K.N.V.A), including a Gede song workshop, card readings, mini altars in the landscape honoring aspects of the Gede pantheon, and a procession culminating in a special dance and drum performance.

Join us also for our Socrates Halloween traditions: spooky costume- and art-making, fantastical face-painting with Agostino Arts, Urban Shaman Mama Donna’s harvest animal blessings for your pets, and of course, our annual Canine Costume Contest with fun prizes and local judges, including Château le Woof and Friends with Four Paws!

Our 2018 events are supported, in part, with public funds from the State of New York, with special thanks to Assemblywoman, Catherine Nolan.
