Join naturalist and author Leslie Day for a tour along the banks of the Hudson River from Riverside Park South, past the 79th Street Boat Basin—where Leslie and her family lived for almost 40 years—north to the pedestrian walkway suspended over the river. Journey along “the river that flows two ways” and discover its rich geological and human history and its diverse ecosystems. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Hudson Rising.

Leslie Day is the author of numerous books, including Field Guide to the Natural World of New York City and Honeybee Hotel: The Waldorf Astoria's Rooftop Garden and the Heart of NYC.
