Next Freshkills Park Talk: Thursday, April 23rd

The Freshkills Park Talks series continues this Thursday with a talk by Ed Toth, Director of the Parks Department’s Greenbelt Native Plant Center.  The GNPC’s mission is to supply New York City’s natural areas with native plants and seeds from local plant populations.  Ed will be discussing the value of locally appropriate planting and detail the Center’s current and future roles in special conservation and reclamation projects.

Key among the GNPC’s upcoming projects will be an 800-tree pot-in-pot nursery and a seven-acre Founder Seed farm in the first section of North Park, to be developed at Freshkills Park within the next two years.  See images of North Park here.

Freshkills Park Talks: Employing Native Plants in Conservation and Reclamation, Thursday, April 23rd @ 7:30 pm at the Staten Island Museum, 75 Stuyvesant Place (a short walk from the St. George Ferry Terminal)
