Hell Gate Meadow: Walk & Sow

May 18, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tour the Hell Gate Wildflower Meadow led by our own Randalls Island ecologist. See the array of native and ornamental plants that provide food and shelter for bees, butterflies, birds, and other wildlife. Check out our bee hotels. And take a piece of Randalls Island home with you! In “All You Can Sow”, you’ll collect and assemble seeds to start a meadow in your own backyard, community garden, or window box.
