Walk The Trails Of ‘Dead Horse Bay’

Walk The Trails Of ‘Dead Horse Bay’

The National Park Service at Gateway National Recreation Area is offering the public an opportunity to learn about the natural, cultural and recreational resources of the Jamaica Bay area, while walking the trails of Dead Horse Bay on Saturday, July 17 at 10:30 a.m.

Mickey Cohen, park volunteer and naturalist for the American Littoral Society, will lead participants through little known woodlands and coastal thickets, and along the treasure-laden shoreline of the unique, and oddly named Dead Horse Bay.

This program is free but reservations are required. To reserve, please phone the Floyd Bennett Field Visitor Contact Station at 718-338-3799. Wear sturdy footwear and bring sun/insect protection and drinking water. The meeting location for this program is the Floyd Bennett Field Visitor Contact Station, located just inside the main entrance to the field, one traffic light north of the Marine Parkway Bridge toll plaza on Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn.

For information on other programs that are being offered at Gateway National Recreation Area this summer, pick up a program guide at any park location or visit the web at: www.nps.gov/gate.
