Discover a diversity of wintering birds with longtime birder and Staten Island resident Anthony Ciancimino. Expect to see a variety of species of waterfowl and wintering songbirds as we explore the diverse habitats found at the park. 

 

The group will meet in the parking lot along across from the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) Center (6541 Hylan Boulevard).

 

Note on Accessibility:
This park has a mix of paved and grass trails, and contains some hilly areas, which can be avoided if the group chooses. There is a restroom as well as a parking lot on site. The park is also accessible via public transportation; the S78 bus stops right at the entrance.
