Description

Nature matters. Imagine life without it.

Join the Natural Areas Conservancy and our partners as we celebrate the natural world of New York City and share our plans for safeguarding it for future generations.

Learn about New York City Nature Goals 2050 and our collaboration with some of our city’s leading environmental experts at REI SoHo. Plus learn about our upcoming outdoor events, check out our interactive nature map, and win prizes including passes to REI Outdoor School classes.

At 7:15 p.m., we’ll hear brief remarks from:

  • Eric Sanderson, conservation ecologist and author of Mannahatta
  • Adrian Benepe, VP with the Trust for Public Land and former NYC Parks Commissioner
  • Amy Freitag, Executive Director of the J.M. Kaplan Fund, generous funder of the Nature Goals initiative
  • Melissa Abramson, REI’s Manager of Outdoor Programs and Outreach in the Tri-State Region.

We’ll share some of our ideas for improving NYC’s nature…and we want to hear yours.

Light refreshments will be provided. Beer has been lovingly donated by Sierra Nevada.
