7. Take a Scenic Hike
New York City parks are calling attention to the importance of women in the history of park creation and preservation. On March 10, Urban Park Rangers will lead guests on a tour of High Rock Park in Staten Island and explain how Gretta Moulton helped save the 300 acres of woods and wetlands from development in the 1960s. The thousands of hikers, students, joggers, dogs walkers, and naturalists who enjoy High Rock Park today have Ms. Moulton, a Trustee of the Staten Island Institute of the Arts and Sciences and the Founder of the Friends of High Rock Park, to thank for saving this popular part of the Greenbelt.
The guided walk is free and will take place on Saturday, March 10 from 11am–12:30 p.m. Visit the NYC Parks website for more details. You can also learn more about women like Gretta Moulton and their impact on New York City parks here.
