  • Free


The Trust for Governors Island's new initiative, Gov­er­nors Island Nature, was designed to expand vis­i­tor engage­ment with the Island’s 120 acres of nat­ur­al and built open spaces. Through learn­ing, pub­lic pro­grams, and com­mu­ni­ty sci­ence, Gov­er­nors Island Nature will edu­cate Island vis­i­tors and all New York­ers about hor­ti­cul­ture, bio­di­ver­si­ty, and the impacts of cli­mate change on our nat­ur­al surroundings. 


Join NYC Audubon and the Island's horticulture team during Governors Island Nature for a Fall Foliage Walking Tour, highlighting the beautiful trees and over 240 bird species that have been spotted on the Island.

Note on Accessibility: 

The Governors Island ferry is free on weekends before noon, but if you plan to arrive in the afternoon, you will need to purchase ferry tickets. Governors Island contains a variety of terrain, from hilly, grassy areas to paved and cobble stone paths. The latter can be difficult to walk on with strollers, for example. Public restrooms are located a short distance away from the Nolan Park House.
