Did you know that Manhattan contains old growth forest and critical salt marsh and tidal mud flats? On this trip we’ll observe the ecology of the broadleaf forests and the tidal basins that sustain natural life in New York City. Jonathan Shevin, our resident horticultural therapist, will be our guide.

Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring your own brown bag lunch and water. Van available, but space is limited. Van leaves Central Queens at 9:30 a.m., returns by 3:00 p.m.

Cost: $18 member / $23 non-member
