Governors Island Nature Walk

Led by the Trust for Governors Island’s horticulture team along with CCNY Insect Ecology Professor Amy Berkov, these monthly tours will take participants on a journey through the young urban forest of Hammock Grove and the immersive spaces at Outlook Hill and Discovery Hill. You’ll get to learn about these resilient, built landscapes directly from the people who know them best, and get the chance to participate in different community science projects.
