A popup mobile woodland is arriving to Manhattan on May 11th, in celebration of the 10th anniversary of NYC Wildflower Week, which presents annual events dedicated to showcasing the city’s natural wonders. To inspire New Yorkers to protect the natural heritage around them, the mobile forest will take to the streets of New York City, beginning in Manhattan at the Brooklyn Bridge and finishing in Times Square.
The organizers hope to raise awareness about urban wild places, foster emotional engagement and connect urbanites to nature. New Yorkers are encouraged to visit the bike at scheduled locations to take nature selfies amidst the foliage, see cute kids dressed as white milkweed, and grab free plants. A variety of events will also be offered during NYC Wildflower Week from May 11th to May 20th, 2018, including a spring migration bird walk, a workshop on urban gardening with native plants, and a visit to the wildflowers in the northwest woods in The Bronx.
