My number is[masked]! Call or text me if you need help finding the group!

Weather Permitting, I am hoping to get a chance to meet many new faces and welcome new members at New York City's most famous greenspace: Central Park!!

Everyone is welcome! Bring your kids!

I'd love to get out there while leaves are still green and we have a few species we can still see in inflorescence!

Created in the late 1800's, Central Park has become home to countless native and not-so-native species!

I'd love for you to join me on a walk by both the East and North Meadow, try to spot some Red Clover, Sorrel, Plantain, Burdock, and other goodies!

Hoping to spot Evening Primrose and Jewelweed by the water, and maybe we'll find some Mugwort, Hawthorn, Button mushrooms and Chicken mushrooms as we pass by the North Woods!

Check out this nifty map here:

It'll be a great chance to swap stories, recipes, and techniques! There is ALWAYS more to learn!
