Sustainable Saturdays at the RING Garden

We’re celebrating Sustainable September at the RING Garden. Join us as we discuss the climate crisis and collaborate on hands-on action items.

What’s the deal with plastic? How does it impact our world and is it really as bad as activists say it is? We’ll talk about what’s going to happen when the New York plastic bag ban takes effect, and create plastic-free alternatives to some of the plastic items in our lives.

The New York City Naturalist Club: ‘Fall Migration’ at Inwood Hill Park

New York City is home to an amazing abundance of wildlife. Our Urban Park Rangers will guide you to the best wildlife viewing spots in the urban jungle. Birding programs are appropriate for all skill levels and beginners are welcome. To enhance your experience we encourage you to bring binoculars and field guides, or ask a Ranger to borrow a pair.
