Rewilding Stuyvesant Cove Park on Saturday June 6 at 5pm

rewilding_blogRachel Frank will be presenting a performance based on rewilding, an environmental practice that seeks to reestablish the landscape’s former ecosystems and increase sustainability by reintroducing species to areas in which they had formerly thrived but have since gone extinct.
