Wildflower Walk: Corson’s Brook Woods
Saturday, May 11, 10am-12pm
Location: Corson’s Brook Woods
Join NYC Wildflower Week for a walk through one of Staten Island’s botanical treasures, Corson’s Brook Woods.
It is home to locally rare wildflowers such as wild ginger, blue cohosh, bloodroot, and false hellebore. Trees include a unique red maple and American basswood community and old-growth tulip trees so large that it takes two people to wrap their arms around them.
Recommended: sturdy shoes, hat, water, sunscreen, and tick repellant. Be prepared for muddy conditions and thorns as we bushwhack through the forest's edge; the walk will last approximately 2 hours.
Meet at the intersection of Jasper St. and Forest Hill Rd. near College of Staten Island.
Walk lead by NYC Wildflower Week, now in its 11th year.
