Mary Beth Artz from WILD for Prospect Park will take families on an journey around the Lullwater and to Music Island.
Mary Beth will talk about Prospect Park’s wildlife as well as the flora and fauna, how WILD is a steward of the park, and how families can become great overseers of the park’s wildlife. There will be aquatic bug, turtle, and other surprise sightings as well as conversation about baby birds, fledglings, and and why it's not a good idea to feed wildlife!
This walk is great for all ages!
$10.00/family - proceeds to be donated to The Wild Bird Fund.
We're meeting by the lake near the Vanderbilt Playground at The Prospect Park Wellhouse (200 Wellhouse Drive). Enter at Vanderbilt Street and Prospect Park Southwest.
