You will find sweet, juicy European cut-leaf blackberries, black cherries, cornelian cherries, elderberries, gourmet wild mushrooms. Wild greens also thrive in meadows and along trail edges; you will hunt for purslane, lamb's-quarters (a wild spinach), wood sorrel, sheep sorrel, poor man's pepper, lady's thumb, and many more. The tour will last for about 4 hours. Please wear a mask and observe social distancing.

Musical | LIBERTY Or JUST US, A City Parks Story

LIBERTY Or JUST US, A City Parks Story is an oratorio that honors NYC parks for being sites of activism for many 20th and 21st century progressive causes, from the Triangle Shirtwaist protests to Occupy Wall Street. It revisits these movements through the eyes of a contemporary Parks Manager in songs featuring him and the multi-ethnic, multi-abled ensemble. The piece celebrates the idea that the USA can be a country of all its people, that moral aspiration can be reinvented to harness energy to overcome our problems, and that our vision can focus on dignity rather than power, equality rather than wealth and solidarity rather than competition. Written and Directed by Crystal Field, Composed by Joseph Vernon Banks.

Opera | Met Opera: Handel’s Agrippina

Handel’s breakout opera masterpiece, Agrippina offers a wryly satirical look at the political maneuverings and personal entanglements of the Roman emperor Claudius, his cadre of advisers and hangers-on, and his cunning wife, Agrippina. Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato delivers a knockout performance of the title role, a woman who will stop at nothing to get her depraved son, Nero (sung by mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey), on the throne. Harry Bicket conducts.
