Insect Walk

Jul 13, 2023 9:00am

Freshkills Park invites you to join us in learning about insects and their incredible adaptations and diversity.

On this two-hour walk, you’ll learn about the many different insects and their kind found in the woods, wetlands, and grasslands at Freshkills Park.

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.

Your ticket admits 1 car. Due to ongoing construction at the Freshkills site, 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: Be “tick aware” and wear long pants, close-toed shoes, and insect repellant. Also wear a hat and bring water and a snack. Do not attend if you are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19. You will be asked to sign an activity waiver before participating in the program.
