Bird Watching with NYC Audubon
Bird Watching with NYC Audubon and Aura Photos – Lets Go Birding Together
The arrival of June marks Pride Month for the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and other sexual orientations and gender identities) community. Celebrations in New York City include pride parades, picnics, parties, and, in the case of NYC Audubon, bird outings!
Let’s Go Birding Together walks are for everyone who loves birds and the outdoors. We welcome the LGBTQ+ community, allies, families, and anyone who wants to enjoy an outdoor experience that is inclusive. Why do we do this? Because the outdoors has not always been a welcoming place for LGBTQ+ people and NYC Audubon wants to help change that.
Meet us at LGBTQ+ historical monument Alice Austen House for a Let’s Go Birding Together (LGBT) outing this Pride! Right on Staten Island’s eastern coast, Alice Austen Park provides a beautiful view of The Narrows, where may also find different species of waterbirds.
Registration not required but encouraged (it helps us know how many binoculars we should bring!). No limit. Free.
Note on Accessibility:
This park has a mix of paved and unpaved paths on fairly flat terrain. The Alice Austen House museum is wheelchair accessible and contains a restroom. There is a small gravel parking lot behind the museum, accessible from Hylan Boulevard. Street parking is generally available along Edgewater Street at the corner of the museum. Otherwise, the site is accessible by the S78 bus. For more information about the Alice Austen House and Park, you can visit the museum’s website as well as NYC Parks’ website.
