Sponsored by the Dukes Soil Conservation District & The Nature Conservancy

Brooklyn Bridge Park, an 85-acre, organic park in the middle of New York City, was created with ecology in mind. The Park’s award-winning piers host top-notch recreation, from opera to outdoor films, all of it beautifully designed. But the piers also contain native woodlands, freshwater wetlands, salt marshes, and numerous meadows. These areas closely echo native ecosystems and are managed
with an emphasis on wildlife habitat. Rebecca McMackin, Director of Horticulture for Brooklyn Bridge Park, will detail the strategies employed to design an ecological park as well as the management techniques used to cultivate biodiverse parkland. If they can do it, you can do it in your garden.
