Came across this on the NY Parks page. Unfortunately, I cannot make it there by 5:30 after work, but for anyone free and interested, please take advantage of this after-work nature walk and history opportunity.
Limited to 20 people. Please note the parks event link below, and double-check it prior to the event for any changes or weather cancellations.
Please make use of the conversation threads to coordinate meeting up with each other at the park. Again, there will not be a 5BE Organizer present, unless someone steps up to be the point-person.
WHERE TO MEET AT: http://goo.gl/maps/xOMPL - This is Margaret Corbin Circle. Most likely, you'll be meeting at the path entrance, near the green arrow. Take the A-Train to 190th St.
WHO TO MEET: Sidney Horenstein
See additional info & description below, as provided by park services. Enjoy!
