Soundview Park – Creating Habitat – One Year Later

Soundview Park October 2014

Soundview Park Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration October 2014

Dear friends and colleagues,

I would like to invite you to a special volunteer event at the sixteen acre Soundview Park Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration. This event is presented in collaboration with iLAND (Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Art, Nature, and Dance) and Natural Areas volunteers (NAV) on June 25th from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.

This year we will focus on the salt marsh, talk about the services provided by the marsh and the challenges to coastal marshes in urban lands.  Then we will spend a few hours planting and repairing the restoration. This past winter was extremely hard on the new marsh, and the damage is severe in areas.

Included will be a wonderful opportunity to join Paloma McGregor, choreographer, who will help us experience the site through movement.

Parking is available in the neighborhood for those who have their own car. We have 12 seats available in one van that will be taking volunteers from El Museo Del Barrio (1234 Fifth Ave) to the site. We will meet at 9:15 am.

NAV will supply water (please bring an empty bottle), tools & gloves. NAV will supply some snacks, but participants are encouraged to bring lunch if they need a heartier meal.

For more details and direction to sign up visit http://www.ilandart.org/creating-habitat-one-year-later/

I hope to see you there. We will have a terrific time.

About Community Greens

It takes more than a village to raise a child in today's world. The world is more than flat or round or sun and moon. It's also the village on the other side of the river. The objects in the sky are different from that view. Community Greens, griot-like, tells a story. I invite you to share my view.
