A Guided Tree Walk
Saturday, May 6th 1:00 PM
meet at the center of McGolrick Park – Under the monument
Join Sophie Plitt of Greening Greenpoint on a walk through McGolrick to learn about its trees and how to get involved with the park!
We’ll be meeting in beautiful McGolrick Park in Greenpoint for a guided tree walk. McGolrick park is known for it’s dense canopy of mature, shady trees. Together we’ll look at these trees, learn the various species growing in the park, and share some tips for identifying trees in NYC. From towering London Plane trees to small, flowering Eastern Red Bud, we’ll take time to look at each leaf, flower, fruit and bud.
On this walk you’ll also learn about Greening Greenpoint and the McGolrick Park Neighborhood Alliance. MPNA is a group of organized community leaders and residents working to improve McGolrick Park and our neighborhood. Find out how you can become a part of this organization and help to steward this beautiful park.
