NYC Audubon: "It's Your Tern!" Festival

Jul 14, 2018
12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

New York City Audubon champions nature in the City’s five boroughs through a combination of engaging and entertaining programs in innovative conservation campaigns. NYC Audubon is an independent non-profit organization affiliated with the National Audubon Society. Through it’s efforts, NYC Audubon protects many species of birds living in the 30,000 acres of wetlands, forests, and grasslands of New York City.

Common Terns, listed as a threatened species in New York State, have nested in recent years on decommissioned piers on Governors Islands’ waterfront. Join us during this free event as we celebrate this awesome species!

There will be expert bird walks and talks by NYC Audubon’s Susan Elbin and Governors Island National Park Volunteer, Annie Barry. There will be hands-on activities for the whole family!

The festival will take place in the South Battery Triangle. In case of rain, the event will be moved to House 17 in Nolan Park.

No registration is required for this event.
