Nature Conservancy Walk & Talk

Sunday, January 29, 11 a.m.–2 p.m.

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. Additional free public parking is provided across Shore Road at the Split Rock Golf Course. Register here.

Music and Mimosas

The group was formed in Bogota, Colombia, in 1976 by U.S. citizens who were principal wind players in the Colombian National Orchestra. The group relocated to New York City in 1979 and has since enjoyed an international career that has taken them to concert halls throughout the Americas, the Caribbean, and Asia, including annual performances at Manhattan's Americas Society. Two-time recipients of ASCAP-Chamber Music America Awards for Adventurous Programming, the Quintet's repertoire represents works from composers with a wide range of aesthetic viewpoints.
