Take an NYC Nature Walk with Hudson River Park Wild
It was gorgeous, like a little nature haven, beautiful flowers, trees, and only when you looked over to your left (at the buildings), did you realize you were in between a concrete jungle and this beautiful river.
- Melissa Lopez, Hudson River Park visitor, in the Associated Press’ “Hudson River Park: Manhattan waterside destination.”
A nature walk in New York? It’s true – and happens every Sunday morning at Hudson River Park. The Park’s 550 acres are a flourishing wildlife habitat, home to wildflowers, native greenery, butterflies, dragonflies, beetles, eels, fish, crustaceans, 85 different species of birds, and much more.
Stroll the waterfront with an experienced nature guide each week and learn about native species crawling in the gardens, feeding in the pile fields and flying above the river. Each walk is different, showcasing the diversity of the Park’s 150 acres of land and 400 acres of estuarine sanctuary. Come experience the biodiversity that today not only survives, but thrives, on Manhattan's West Side.
Participants can expect to walk up to two miles. Group meets at 9AM on Pier 40. For more information, visit the Hudson River Park Wild! page.
