Save the dates

May 1
The Listening Tour.
I will be leading a Proteus Gowanus event on May Day at 6:00 a.m., as part of the interdisciplinary gallery and reading room’s Paradise exhibition. We will meet at the Grand Army Plaza entrance to Prospect Park. Then we’ll SILENTLY walk through Prospect Park at the crack of dawn to listen to the sounds of spring: the dawn chorus (dozens of species of birds are passing through), the tumble of water, the beating of our own hearts, the hounds on the Long Meadow. This is a walking meditation, a sensory re-adjustment, and, yes, a god-awful early time to wake up. I, for one, will be joyously disoriented by time, ready for the crack of dawn in the urban maelstrom to tear me asunder, and open to the sounds of this tiny, tiny, tiny bit of the universe.

May 15
Botanical Walk.
I will lead a tour of Four Sparrow Marsh for NYC Wildflower Week, starting at 11:30 a.m. Wildflower Week (May 6-15) is a now annual series of events and tours throughout the five boroughs aimed at getting New Yorkers to become familiar with the nature in their backyard. (A mission after my heart, so you know we were destined to come together.) Check out the long week’s other events, too, because there’s a full slate of great things going on.

Four Sparrow Marsh, which I’ve written about before, is a little bit of wild Brooklyn under threat from developers and their politicians.
