Why do birds flock to Central Park every spring and fall? We’ll find out as we explore Central Park’s woodlands, and learn the basics of bird identification along the way!

Bring your family for a guided walk and discover why Central Park is a sanctuary for plants, animals, and humans alike. Learn about the architecture, landscapes, and ecosystems of the Park through hands-on exploration using Discovery Kits – rugged backpacks filled with kid-friendly binoculars, field guides, and hand lenses.

Pre-registration required as space is limited. Families with children ages 5+ only; no groups, please. Please arrive at walk location 15 minutes before the start of the Discovery Walk to allow time for check in and to pick up Discovery Kits.

Terrain: Uneven, with hills, stairs, and wood-chipped trails; may not be suitable for strollers.

Start time: 10:00 am

End time: 11:30 am

'Tis the season for the return of sea ducks, gulls, and grebes to the lower New York Harbor. We will stand at the end of the fishing pier to observe the wildlife in the bay and earn how to identify these birds. We will probably see a seal or two! Dress for the weather and bring a hot drink. Meet in Lot 8 on Father Capodanno Blvd (near the intersection of Seaview Ave). Bring field guides and binoculars. Register via the Eventbrite link below.

This Greenbelt on the Go event is made possible thanks to the generous funding from NYC Council Member Joseph C. Borelli of the 51st District on Staten Island, as part of the Greener NYC Initiative.

Start time: 9:00 am

End time: 11:00 am
