Winter Walk at Pelham Bay Park

January 29 @ 11:00 am1:00 pm


Join the Nat­u­ral Areas Con­ser­van­cy for a guid­ed walk through the coastal and forest­ed areas of New York City’s largest park. This diverse 2,700-acre park has plen­ti­ful forest and wet­land nat­u­ral areas and is home to sig­nif­i­cant wildlife.

Eco­log­i­cal­ly speak­ing, Pel­ham Bay Park is the south­ern tip of New Eng­land and has char­ac­ter­is­tics quite dis­tinct from the rest of New York City. Tour lead­er and ecol­o­gist Helen For­gione will show you how to iden­ti­fy trees in win­ter and inter­pret signs of wildlife, with a spe­cial eye toward owls and tracks.

Includ­ed in the tour will be find­ings from the Nat­u­ral Areas Conservancy’s two-year-study doc­u­ment­ing and ana­lyz­ing forests and wet­lands in New York City park­lands. The walk and pre­sen­ta­tion will begin and end at the his­toric land­mark 19th-cen­tu­ry Bar­tow Pell Man­sion — with hot choco­late!

Please be pre­pared with warm clothes, snow-ready walk­ing shoes, and water if need­ed. Meet at Bar­tow Pell Man­sion at 895 Shore Road in Pel­ham Bay Park, Bronx. Free pub­lic park­ing is pro­vid­ed across Shore Road at the Split Rock Golf Course.
