About this event
Washington Square Park in New York City, NY is known for its historical architecture such as the Washington Arch, which was named in commemoration of the nation's first president. Less known are the historical ecologies of this 9.75 acre parcel in the heart of Greenwich Village. Join Georgia for this engaging online lecture as she leads a virtual, guided exploration of the past, present, and in-between ecologies of the park.
