The Trees of Central Park: Fall Walk
Nature Walks

Note: This Program is cancelled



Central Park is home to more than one hundred native and transplanted species of trees. Join us for an autumn journey through the park and learn how to identify some of the trees that call it home. Elms, maples and tuliptrees will be among the many species putting on a colorful display as they shed their leaves for winter. Walking tours are limited to 35 guests per tour. Please buy tickets in advance.


Leslie Day is a biology and life-science teacher at The Elisabeth Morrow School. She developed the City Naturalists Summer Institute with the Central Park Conservancy and is the author of Field Guide to the Street Trees of New York City, illustrated by Trudy Smoke, who has studied botanical illustration at the New York Botanical Garden since 2004. She is Professor of English at Hunter College.
