Smartphone (iPhoneography) Photo Hunt in Washington Square Park
Saturday, May 2, 11 am - 1:30 pm

Spring Nature Walk in Washington Square Park
Friday, May 8, 11 am - 12:15 pm
Dr. Leslie Day returns to observe all the wild things of the park -- trees, herbaceous perennials, birds, and mammals. For the geology buffs, we don't have the Hartland formations found in Pelham Bay Park or the Manhattan schist common to Central Park, but Washington Square Park has approximately 122,640 cubic feet of Tuckahoe marble. Can you guess where it is?!
