CITY NATURE CHALLENGE FAMILY DAY Presented in Partnership with Genspace

In partnership with our friends at Genspace (a community biology lab in Brooklyn), we have planned an adventurous morning of activities and learning for kids of all ages.

Expert naturalists will lead groups to collect data on birds, insects, fungi, and plants at the Cemetery for the City Nature Challenge every half hour between 10:30am and 12:30pm. Microscopy activity stations will offer an opportunity to view nature up close.

At 11am, Clarinda Mac Low and Carolyn Hall, Genspace creative programs coordinators and the creators of Sunk Shore will lead a 45-minute time-traveling walking experience about how the climate crisis affects the trees at Green-Wood.

What is the City Nature Challenge? Every year, for four days, people in cities across the world join together to find and identify as many species of wildlife as possible. To participate, all you need is a smartphone with a camera and an iNaturalist account and we’ll help you photograph wildlife at Green-Wood to contribute to one of the world’s largest citizen science projects.

Free. Registration is recommended, but not required:
