Hoping soon to go out iNatting with one or more of my iNatter friends

@djringer , @catverde , @steven-cyclist , @zitserm ...

Soon I hope to go out to Randall's Island, the Wards Island part of it. DONE NOW for the Fish Count.

I also intend to go over to the Community Garden on Roosevelt island via the tram and the free R.I. bus. DONE NOW but... the garden is only open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from April 15th to October 15th.

Possibly I want to check out the Butterfly Gardens in Central Park, (meet up at 5th Ave and 102nd Street) although I am thinking maybe it is still too early to find any interesting insects there. DONE NOW, but basically no interesting insects at all -- too early in the year.

Ed and I might also take the express bus up to Riverdale to visit Wave Hill Garden, or maybe the other express bus to the Bronx Zoo.

Please let me know if you have any interest in one or more of these destinations, or perhaps other destination(s).

best wishes,

Susan

I plan to be there when it starts. I hope Ed will want to come too, but I think he will say it is too early for him.

it is always interesting to see what they find. Recently they found a seahorse!

Seeing a seahorse would be pretty amazing!

I agree, although fairly often we do see a pipefish, which are a close relative.

I am in a heavy travel period but will be back around the last couple weeks of June. I am hoping to spend some time up in Inwood Hill Park this summer!

Publicado por djringer hace alrededor de 1 mes

Hope to see you during the last two weeks of June!

Inwood Hill Park sounds great if my foot will cooperate.

@catverde -- Ed and I will be going to the community garden on Roosevelt Island tomorrow, Sunday, using the tram and the free bus. Would you want to come too?
