January 14 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join the Pelham Bay Park Urban Rangers for a guided walk through the coastal and forested areas of New York City’s largest park. This diverse 2,700-acre park has many forest and wetland natural areas and is home to significant numbers of 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. The rangers will show you how to identify trees in winter and interpret signs of wildlife, with a special eye toward owls and tracks. The walk will begin and end at the historic landmark 19th-century Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum—with hot chocolate! Please be prepared with warm clothes, snow-ready walking shoes, and water if needed. Meet at Bartow Pell Mansion.
