May 2008

Saturday, May 3, 9:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 39th Annual Spring Ten Mile Walk of the SI Greenbelt — Ten moderate miles at a comfortable pace. See wonderful vistas, beautiful woodlands and the blooming of the Pinxter Azalea, Highbush Blueberry and Canada Mayflower throughout our Greenbelt. Meet at our new meeting place where the parking is easier: the beginning of the blue line trail, at the end of Staten Island Blvd. (at the end of the road right above Petrides School which intersects Ocean Terrace). Bring lunch, beverage and sturdy walking shoes as well as camera, binoculars and field guides. We go in all weather but walk is shortened if high pollution
levels occur. For more information call Dick Buegler (718)761-7496 or Chuck Perry (718)667-1393 for more information.

Saturday, May 3 Join Shorewalkers on its annual Great Saunter—a 32-mile walk around Manhattan’s rim. The pace is steady, but not fast. We’ll go rain or shine and will walk through more than a dozen parks. There are many points from which you can easily drop off and catch public transportation. Main start is at 7:30 a.m. at the corner of Fulton & South Streets (in front of Heartland Brewery at the South Street Seaport), and there are other points where you can join along the way. Check www.shorewalkers.org or call (212) 330-7686 for more information.
