Join us on Saturday March 26 for a peaceful gathering in Prospect Park to support and celebrate our urban wildlife.
“HANDS AROUND THE LAKE”
Saturday, March 26th 2011
Prospect Park- Lakeside- enter at Vanderbilt St and Prospect Park SW
12:30pm gather/1:00pm start
(Gather just to the left on lakeside/take short walk on road to grassy area near the Well House)
The Brooklyn community- (adults and children), NYS Senator Eric Adams and Council Member Letitia James as well as wildlife advocates from across the city will be joining hands around the perimeter of Prospect Park Lake- in a show of solidarity for the humane treatment of Canada Geese and all urban wildlife in New York City parks and greenspaces.
Participants will gather to demand that Mayor Bloomberg end the city’s contract with the USDA to exterminate Canada Geese and implement only humane, non-lethal alternatives to gassing. Focus will also be on learning to peacefully co-exist with urban wildlife, as the wildlife that we have in our city parks and greenspaces is indeed valued by the community.
