Parrot Wild Walk

Saturday, September 29

10 a.m. - 12 p.m.


Join us for a wild time, taking in the beauty of parrots at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. This walk is facilitated by Rev. Dr. LoraKim Joyner, a wildlife veterinarian that has worked in parrot conservation for nearly 32 years in the Americas.

We will join her and one another in a walk through parts of the Green Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. We will highlight the beauty of birds, especially the parrots that live in the historic Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. This is one of One Earth Conservation's Wild Walks that we lead throughout the year in the Metro New York area.

Our hope is to more deeply connect to nature so that we can live with more resilience, joy, and contribution to life around us. For a short time we cast off our culture's attempt to domesticate us and return to our wild selves. We begin with a guided walk that contains practices to grow five natural intelligences - emotional, social, multispecies, ecological, and spiritual. The second half of the walk we will chatter, identify birds and trees, and enjoy the morning's light. This is a nonsectarian religious event, although many will find spirituality in how we are connecting to nature and that which is greater than ourselves.

Bring binoculars as we will also be birdwatching!

Check back here for any weather advisories. It looks like it will be clear weather, and even if it just a little bit wet, we will still go. Just dress accordingly.

We will walk for about 90 minutes. If you get lost, call or text this cell phone: 914-325-9574.

Parking is free (and there is plenty of it) within the Cemetery - park near the main entrance as noted above.
