Join us for our Nature Poetry series, which will bring you into inspiring locations each week in the Park.

During these workshops, participants have the opportunity to reflect on the interconnectedness between the natural and human worlds with the Hudson River as your muse.

From field notes to free-flowing free writes to full-fledged poems, participants will discover new, refreshing ways of appreciating, engaging with and acting as a steward of the natural world of New York City.

Whether you’re an experienced writer or have never written before, Nature Poetry will give you an opportunity to reimagine your relationship to that magnificent river that shapes our city.

Space is limited, so sign up today to secure your spot! We encourage participants to join all three weeks of this series.
