Meet at the Floyd Bennett Field south entrance parking lot. Join us to remember our friend Jean Bourque, who passed away in 2014. A longtime advocate for wildlife conservation in New York City and wife of past NYC Audubon President Ron Bourque, Jean was particularly instrumental in the protection of grasslands at Floyd Bennett Field. This walk in her memory will focus on plants, insects, birds and overall nature, in the setting she nurtured and loved. No limit. Free (See registration details below)
