The Importance of Marshland Restoration Workshop with Sketch/Watercolor Site Study

In this workshop we will discuss the important role of wetlands in the context of climate change—as habitat, flood and erosion mitigation, and stormwater filtration. We will introduce CIOR’s proposal for returning the site behind P.S. 175 to a Living Shoreline, in partnership with the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, by observing different vegetation zones and by creating sketches and watercolor studies of the site. For beginners, basic landscape painting techniques will be introduced. Participants will leave with a small set of watercolor paints, a pad, and a deepened appreciation of our shoreline.

Limited to 20 participants. Register here.
