Join acclaimed photographer Beth Moon, author of Ancient Skies, Ancient Trees, as she delves into her artistic process and the experience of traveling around the world to photograph these natural relics. It is only in the rarest and clearest of nights that we can look up at the sky to find a sprinkling of twinkling stars.

Surrounded by the bright lights of humanity, the infinite majesty of the night sky can only be truly enjoyed by those devoted enough to seek it. Critically-acclaimed photographer Beth Moon’s own appreciation of cosmos inspired her quest, spanning from continent to continent, to some of the darkest corners of world, where constellations and nebulas shine more brightly. Moon’s Ancient Skies, Ancient Trees captures the boundless beauty of trees under the night sky, seemingly undisturbed by humans. Discover her relentless journey—undeterred by knee-high mud, windstorms, and distance—to reveal the rich hues of the night that are often too faint to be seen by the naked eye.

Beth Moon is a photographer based in New York who has gained international recognition for her large-scale, richly-toned platinum prints. Her prints are held in numerous public and private collections and have appeared in more than sixty solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Italy, England, France, Israel, Brazil, Dubai, Singapore, and Canada, receiving widespread critical acclaim. With this new book, she explores color photography for the first time.

Space is limited so please RSVP to ancientskiesancienttrees.eventbrite.com.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water.

Exercising with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestow health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

Calling all park lovers! This spring, the New York Junior League's Playground Improvement Project committee ("PIP") invites you to join them in rolling up your sleeves to help revitalize Jackie Robinson Park in Harlem.

Throughout five weekends in April and May PIP committee members, New York Junior League volunteers, and community volunteers will spend a day in the park gardening, landscaping, painting, and completing other tasks to help spruce up this highly used space. PIP will provide you with breakfast, lunch, and a t-shirt.

All volunteer days are rain or shine.

Registration
All participants (ages 16 and older) must register in advance. Volunteers can sign up nyjl.org/playground Please RSVP if you are interested in participating in one or more park days (April 22, 23, 29, 30 and May 6, 7, 13, 20, 21). Registration closes when capacity is reached or the Wednesday prior to that weekend's park days.

About the New York Junior League Playground Improvement Project
For more than 25 years, the Playground Improvement Project (PIP) has been a New York Junior League signature community project. Our volunteers create safe, beautiful, well-organized, and educational play spaces for children and other members of the New York City community. PIP focuses on sites and parks that need major renovation and have the greatest impact on the surrounding community. Weekend cleanup days include landscaping and repairing the parks. We work with over 700 volunteers each season to help improve the park and make a positive impact on the community. Please reach out to playground@nyjl.org with any questions or if you are interested in making a donation to this cause.

For the first time, Poe Park Visitor Center is highlighting artwork created by NYC Parks youth through an art festival. This three-week art festival will include a variety of artwork created, from September of 2016 through April of 2017, by children who attend NYC Parks youth programming at recreation centers throughout the five boroughs.

Artist and Recreation Specialist Laura Alvarez created monthly curriculums, which were implemented by the recreation team throughout the year. Each lesson plan was based on a famous artist’s work, allowing for cohesion in the exhibit, while also allowing the children to use various styles of art in their own work.

About Poe Park Visitor Center
The Poe Park Visitor Center, a gallery space in the Bronx, offers free dynamic arts and cultural programming from theatrical performances and
concerts to fitness classes and recreational activities. The center hosts rotating art exhibitions, and welcomes visual, literary, and performance

For the second annual GROW Brooklyn Festival in Crown Heights, organizations in urban farming, culinary arts, and technology will come together for a fun-filled afternoon to bring greater awareness of Diversity Through Food. GROW Brooklyn Festival will celebrate New York City's multiculturalism by inviting organizations to showcase activities that highlight their own culture, with the aim to encourage visitors to embrace the garden-to-kitchen movement, and promote cultural diversity through cuisine.

The Garden Row will teach attendees of all ages how to garden within their urban environment. Interactive demonstrations will include basil & lettuce seedlings give away and cultivation, red worm composting, retrofill water systems creation, beekeeping, honey tasting from the Five Boroughs, workshop on raising hens to lay eggs, pepper tasting from all over the world, and making of seed bombs.

The Culinary Row will showcase the beauty and taste of home-grown food by offering rich, diverse and yet still simple culinary demonstrations. This year’s offerings will include organic baby and toddler food, Middle Eastern recipes, and delicious flavors from Afghanistan and Venezuela as cooked by asylum seekers, as well as onsite enrollment for food stamps and information on maximizing food stamp benefits.

The Technology Row will bring to life how technology and creativity can enhance our appreciation of good food and healthy living. Interactive educational and creative activities will feature sustainability video games with fruits and vegetables connecting to Makey Makey devices, textile decorating with natural plant dyes, a drawing contest and games with the teachers and students of the Computer Resource Center at St. John’s Recreation Center, and the Computer School.

This event is free, and features live music performed by Pop and R&B singer Usen Isong. For more information, please visit GROW Brooklyn Festival's website.
