Prospect Park Tour

img_1048Tree-maven and all-around naturalist Ken Chaya and I are teaming up to lead a nature walk in Prospect Park this Sunday. Ken’s the man who mapped the trees of Central Park and is now helping to census all the plant species in that park.

Ken and I will be looking high and low for animal and plant life, and enjoying the leaf colors. The history of the park will also be discussed– we can debate the merits of Olmsted and Vaux’s Central (the prototype) and Prospect (the masterpiece) parks!

When: Sunday, 11/6 from 11:00am till 2:00pm

Where: Meet at the park entrance at Grand Army Plaza (2 & 3 Trains stop here, B & Q are nearby at 7th Avenue). Sunday is Marathon Day, so driving is not recommended.

What else: cost is $10 per person ($5 for students). Bring binoculars if you have them. Dress appropriately for the weather and for walking. The forecast is partly cloudy, windy, a high of 61.

Please RSVP in the comments section if you plan to attend (by 10pm on Saturday, November 5th). (Comments won’t be published.)

Sunday will be the first day of standard time, so set your clocks back in time and come take a stand against the sudden fall of night with us.beech
