City of Water Day: Wings Over Water Walk

Jul 13, 2024 11:00am

The Freshkills Park Alliance invites you to learn about our winged friends who love the water! On this guided walk, we will be on the lookout for different winged creatures at Freshkills Park, which include osprey, egrets, herons, dragonflies, and more. Join us in learning about various wetland species, the threats wetlands face, the importance of wetlands to our world, and how we can protect them.

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.

Location: We will meet at North Park across from the composting comfort stations (Directions here).

Plan Ahead: Be “tick aware” and wear long pants, close-toed shoes, and insect repellant. Also wear a hat and bring water and a snack.

Accessibility: We will be walking approximately 1-mile on a gravel trail, which includes elevation and can be uneven at times.

Restrictions: You will be asked to sign an activity waiver before participating in the program. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
