Synopsis: This walk celebrates an important grassroots victory, the long hope for New York State Department of Conservation “Wetland Class One” protection status after an eleven year battle of activism by a coalition of birders, conservation groups, the Queens Community board and elected officials. The Brooklyn Bird Club and several members –particularly Steve Nanz, Heidi Steiner, and Rob Jett –were a critical force of the coalition to save Ridgewood Reservoir.
