This Saturday, Staten Island OutLOUD, a community dialogue and performance project, will be reading from the naturalist memoir Days Afield atop North Mound at the Freshkills Park site.  Days Afield, written in 1892, is a poetic exploration of Staten Island’s natural resources by naturalist, historian and Staten Island native William T. Davis (1862-1945).  North Mound will soon become the North Park section of Freshkills Park, and it offers spectacular views of the William T. Davis Wildlife Refuge.

The event piggybacks on our regular tour route.  It’s fully booked, but we’ll be doing another reading with Staten Island OutLOUD from the works of Robert Frost in September–stay tuned, and check our official website for more upcoming events.  We’ll post some pictures and recap of Saturday’s event next week on the blog.

You can also propose your own program to take place along our tour route–we’ve put out a Request for Program Proposals to interested groups and individuals.
