River to Creek: come to the first open research trip

Saturday, July 17, 2010, 5 PM
Meet at the India St. exit of the Greenpoint Ave. G stop.

Come to a research walk through the wilds of North Brooklyn, with an informal talk by Steve Glenn from the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and a historical tour of the land.  This event is FREE and open to the public.

Wear comfortable shoes, bring a hat and water!    RSVP and questions to tryst@culturepush.org.    Call 917-306-6363 if questions on the day of the walk.

River to Creek:  A Roving Natural History of North Brooklyn is a participatory research project and art action that draws attention to the geographic and ecological connections across the industrial landscape of North Brooklyn, from the wild empty lots at the end of Newtown Creek in Bushwick to the East River at the edge of Greenpoint.

There will be three public hands-on research tours–July 17, August 21 and Sept. 11–and a final presentation in the beginning of October.
