May 8 is Lenore’s Memorial Event for Starr Saphir

The event is free and open to all, and it will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 8, at Summit Rock in Central Park, which is just off Central Park West and 83rd Street. You can reach Summit Rock by entering the park off of either West 81st or West 85th Street. This map shows you where it is.

Lenore Swenson wants to set aside some time at the beginning for people who want to share their thoughts about Starr. There are benches ringing the area so those who want to sit can do so. The trees here have often provided spectacular displays of warblers, as Starr’s walks observed, so we hope that we will be treated to some pretty sights and sounds.

After discussion, Lenore will lead a birding walk through the Ramble, just as she and Starr did for over twenty years.

In case of rain, the alternate date for this event is Friday, May 10.
