Tour of Forest Park
Wallenberg Square, SW corner of Park Lane South and Metropolitan Ave., Queens
Designed by Frederick Olmsted in the 1890s, Forest Park is the third largest park in Queens. We will get a last look at some fading spring ephemerals, visit some oddball plant populations, see a restoration site that was formerly a stand of the invasive Norway maple and find good representation from the parsley (Apiaceae) family. If you’d like to do some bird watching before or after the walk, bring binoculars. Forest Park is an excellent place to view migrating warblers.
Part of NYC Wildflower Week.
