Let’s bring awareness of the importance of pollinators to the community. Randall’s Island Hell Gate Wildflower Meadow has been designed and managed to protect its incredible diversity of native plants and the wildlife they support. Our meadow is just about ready for peak bloom and they’re already taking visitors. A lot of pollinating insects have found their way. Please join our horticulturist for a Hell Gate Wildflower Meadow tour and learn about the native plants and the pollinators.
Through Community Rowing, guests of all ages explore the Bronx River aboard student-built wooden row boats, accompanied by staff who teach them about the local waterways. Community Birding brings birdwatching to the shores of the Bronx River. Identify and learn about local species with knowledgeable guides. Binoculars and field guides will be provided.
