City Nature Challenge Family Day

April 28, 10 am1 pm.

Green-Wood is the perfect place for families to explore nature! In partnership with Genspace (a community biology lab in Brooklyn), they have planned an adventurous morning of activities and learning for kids of all ages. Expert naturalists will be leading walks to collect data on birds, insects, fungi, and plants at the Cemetery for the City Nature Challenge. Microscopy activity stations will offer an opportunity to view nature up close.  There will also be an interactive experience about the future of trees at Green-Wood led by Clarinda Mac Low and Carolyn Hall, Genspace creative programs coordinators and the creators of Sunk Shore.

What is the City Nature Challenge? Every year, for four days, people in cities across the world join together to find and identify as many species of wildlife as possible. To participate, all you need is a smart phone with a camera and an iNaturalist account and we’ll help you photograph wildlife at Green-Wood to contribute to one of the world’s largest citizen science projects.

Registration is recommended, but not required.
