Climate Week 2020: Events in Prospect Park
September 14, 2020
Join Prospect Park Alliance for NYC Climate Week 2020, September 21-27, 2020, and participate in a variety of events online and in the park. Prospect Park's 585 acres of thriving ecosystems are home to hundreds of species of plants and animals, including: 30,000 trees, Brooklyn's only lake and last remaining forest. It is an environmental treasure that benefits our health, our planet and our quality of life for millions of Brooklynites, who have the least amount of green space per resident in all of New York City.
Climate change poses serious threats to Prospect Park and our community, and its effects are already being felt in Brooklyn's Backyard. This year, we're excited to host a variety of events to in partnership with Natural Areas Conservancy, Turnstile Tours, WE ACT and more, to bring expert voices to the conversation with the public about climate change and equity in the park and beyond. Additionally, those looking to turn their activism into action can sign up to volunteer at cleanups in the park to help keep this green space healthy and vibrant. And don't forget to check out our Virtual Prospect Park activities to teach kids about climate change and the environment from home.
