Join the Stewardship Team for an evening of horseshoe crab monitoring! Since 2013, NYC Parks has been monitoring horseshoe crab spawning activity.

We'll walk the beach to count the number of crabs present and tag 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.

Dandelion, burdock, violet leaf and ground ivy: just a few of the plants we've all encountered growing in our school and community gardens in between the rows of neatly cultivated tomato, carrot and brassica. Unwelcome as they may seem, these plants have been valued for centuries as medicines and sources of wild food. In this workshop, educators and gardeners will learn ways to help young people develop their plant identification skills, and an appreciation of the healing plants—often discarded as mere weeds—that grow abundantly all over our city.

Facilitated by Jessica Turner, Harlem Children's Zone; Grow to Learn; and GreenThumb

Throughout the month of July we will be highlighting community gardens that focus on ornamental plants as part of Botanical Month.
