Join NYC Audubon, New York State Parks, and Outdoor Afro to explore the largest state park in New York City, Shirley Chisholm State Park! This fairly new park was built on top of landfills and now supports a rich diversity of wildlife and habitat, including hawks, waterfowl, wetlands, and many tree and native grass species.


The group will meet at the Penn Side Entrance of Shirley Chisholm State Park (1750 Pennsylvania Ave).


Registration not required but encouraged (it helps us know how many extra binoculars we should bring!). No Limit. Free.


Note on Accessibility:
This park contains mostly gravel trails of different lengths and inclinations. Restrooms, parking, and a water-filling station can be found near the meeting location. The BM2, BM5, B82, B82-SBS, and B83 buses all stop near the Pennsylania Entrance. For more details about Shirley Chisholm State Park's facilities and how to get there, please visit the New York State Parks website.
