City of Forest Day at the Audubon Center

Join Prospect Park Alliance at the Audubon Center for a range of family fun, stewardship and learning about Brooklyn’s last remaining forest, Prospect Park, on the first City of Forest Day, a citywide effort to raise awareness of our urban forest.

Families and youth can enjoy nature arts and crafts: learn about the variety of leaves that compose the urban forest, and arrange fallen leaves into a picture. Attendees can also lend a hand by raking leaves around the Audubon Center to help us prepare the park for winter. At 12 pm, set out on a nature walk to learn about the seasonal behavior of trees, plants and wildlife throughout Prospect Park.
