Take the fer­ry over to our green oasis for a spe­cial guid­ed tour to dis­cov­er and con­nect with the wildlife that calls this place home. Led by the Trust for Gov­er­nors Island’s hor­ti­cul­ture team along with CCNY Insect Ecol­o­gy Pro­fes­sor Amy Berkov, these month­ly tours will take par­tic­i­pants on a jour­ney through the young urban for­est of Ham­mock Grove and the immer­sive spaces at Out­look Hill and Dis­cov­ery Hill. You’ll get to learn about these resilient, built land­scapes direct­ly from the peo­ple who know them best, and get the chance to par­tic­i­pate in dif­fer­ent com­mu­ni­ty sci­ence projects. 

Click here to down­load iNat­u­ral­ist app in advance so you can log all the wildlife you spot dur­ing your vis­it. Gov­er­nors Island Nature Walks are free and open to all, and are held entire­ly out­doors on Gov­er­nors Island. Sep­tem­ber’s tour, held in hon­or of Cli­mate Week NYC, will depart from Yan­kee Hang­er at Liggett Ter­race near the Urban Farm (click here for direc­tions).
