Birding Tour at Freshkills Park, Staten Island


    The Meadowlands Commission isn't the only agerncy in the region working wonders with former landfills. On Staten Island, the old Freshkills Landfill has been reborn as Freshkills Park.

This Sunday, Freshkills Park is sponsoring a bird walk along the site's wetlands and creeks.

    The  walk  will be led by naturalists from the Staten Island Museum and  park planners from the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. It will  be travelled both by bus and by foot. The tour will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will last about two hours.

    Space is limited. To register, please email with the subject heading “September Bird Tour” or call (212) 788-8277.
