Birds and insects at the Naval Cemetery Landscape–Brooklyn Navy Yard

May 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

NOTE: Registration for this special event is via Eventbrite, see the link below.

Leaders: Matthew Wills, naturalist (BBC) and Eric Thompson, gardener and naturalist (BGI)

Focus: Explore this native pollinator meadow and memorial landscape. The walk will focus primarily on insects and late migrating birds. This event will be at the Naval Cemetery Landscape (NCL). The NCL is fully operated and made open as a public space by Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI) through the generosity of supporters. Stop by and enjoy the NCL’s native pollinator habitat and contemplative memorial urban meadow and learn about the NCL and the Greenway and what goes into maintaining their beauty and accessibility for every visitor, especially the many species of birds for which they intentionally cultivate habitat and resources!

This site is managed by the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative who will give a BBC a presentation the previous week. Check the Brooklyn Bird Club meetings page on the BBC website for details (to come soon.)

BYOB- bring your own binoculars!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This event is free but please make sure to register/get a ticket via the EVENTBRITE LINK  for each attending member. As a nature observation event we will be limiting the number of participants. Please see the Eventbrite page for location and directions.
