City Nature Challenge Biodiversity Walk
Lace up your shoes for a nature walk at Freshkills Park! Freshkills Park staff will take you behind the scenes to visit areas that are currently closed to the public. On this one-mile walk, you’ll learn about the different plants and animals found in the woods, wetlands, and grasslands at Freshkills Park. Learn more about iNaturalist and join our project here.
There is a $10 suggested donation per participant. Your donation supports the education, programming, and research at the Freshkills Park Alliance and makes programs like this possible.
You will be asked to sign an activity waiver before participating in the program.
Your ticket admits 1 car. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, all participants must provide their own car that will stay on-site the whole time. Participants may not use a bicycle, taxi or ride-share service. Each ticket holder may bring up to 4 additional guests in their car. During registration you will be asked about additional participants in your car. Due to limited reservations, carpooling with friends and family is encouraged.
Accessibility: We will be walking approximately 1-mile on a gravel trail, which includes elevation and can be uneven at times. An ADA accessible portable toilet will be available at the beginning and end of the walk.
Plan Ahead: Wear long pants, close-toed shoes, and insect repellant. Also wear a hat and bring water and a snack. Tools, gloves, masks, and sanitizer will be provided. Do not attend if you are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19.
