'Hands Around the Lake' Protest for Prospect Park Geese

On Saturday, March 26 at 1 p.m. 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.

The peaceful event, called "Hands Around the Lake," is meant to support and celebrate our urban wildlife.

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 valued by the community.

(Gather at 12:30 p.m. just to the left on lakeside/take short walk on road to grassy area near the Well House. More at Brooklynian.)
