With new cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) continuing to spread in New York, the FMCP Conservancy urges you to do the 20-second hand wash frequently. Most of the hand-washing time should be spent RINSING your hands because that’s where the virus gets flushed down the drain.

We all know what to do: Avoid crowds, especially in poorly ventilated spaces with limited air circulation.Defer all cruise ship travel worldwide, particularly if you also have underlying health issues. Avoid situations that put you at increased risk, including non-essential travel such as long plane trips.

We know that we might be in for an 8-week moratorium so take care of yourself, but if you have extra supplies maybe you could share something with someone, and last be safe.

Wanna See An Eagle?

Wanna See An Eagle?

Stop at Flushing Meadow-Corona Park’s Willow Lake. Our Urban Park Rangers and Wildlife Unit lead wildlife viewing hours and lectures all year long. Throughout FMCP there are mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles, fish and horseshoe crabs galore, but our eagles at Willow Lake are very shy and you have to be very quiet if you see one. What should you do when you find a wild creature? Maintain a safe distance—but if it’s injured call 311, if it’s in immediate danger call 911. For more information go to nycgovparks.org and check out the Urban Park Rangers

Have You Ever Seen A 1939-1940 NYWF Map
May 1 @ 9:30 pm – 10:30 pm

 

The 1939–40 New York World’s Fair was  held at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and it was the second most expensive American world’s fair of all time.  The lake, currently named Meadow Lake, was originally named Fountain Lake (we wonder what happened to the fountains that are illustrated in the map?). Just as there were many wonders in the Park then there remains many wonderful places to explore today (and don’t forget Willow Lake the home of many species of critters).
