From eagles to coyotes, pumpkin ashes to Torrey's mountain mint, New York City continues to astound with the variety of plants and animal species found here. Some have figured out how to thrive in this harsh urban environment, some are just passing through on migration, and others are just barely holding on. Join us for an illustrated talk on the enormous variety of flora and fauna here in the city and where to find it, with a special emphasis on Brooklyn's wild edges, green heart, and right outside your door.
