Long Island: Parks with stories to tell (Virtual)

Long Island: Parks with stories to tell (Virtual)

Wednesday, May 12 at 2:00 PM

Duration: 1 hr

In all, there’s at least 70,000 acres of recreational and wooded parkland spread across Long Island, from Queens to Montauk. Join Jeanne Schnupp in her new series. She will start by visiting five very different parks/preserves: Alley Pond in Queens, Christopher Morley in Nassau, and Connetquot River, Caleb Smith and David Weld in Suffolk. She will dive into why these particular pieces of land escaped development and became public places, their special histories and how they came by their names. You will find that the parks each have a unique story to tell!  No registration required...Just go to our Facebook page to watch the video.
