Charles A. Dana Discovery Center (Inside the Park at 110th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues) Central Park Conservancy will host natural history author and long-time Park enthusiast Edward Sibley Barnard for an illustrated talk about his new book Central Park Trees and Landscapes: A Guide to New York City’s Masterpiece, co-written by Neil Calvanese, the Conservancy’s former Vice President for Operations and chief arborist. Books will be available for purchase. Under the direction of the Central Park Conservancy, the park's landscapes have been painstakingly restored to achieve the effects envisioned more than 150 years ago by the park's designers, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Central Park Trees and Landscapes is the ultimate field guide to the trees and landscapes of Central Park, with a lively, authoritative text and over 900 color photographs, botanical plates, and extraordinarily detailed maps.
