A BEAUTIFUL GIFT FOR CENTRAL PARK LOVERS EVERYWHERE!
Dedicated to all those who delight in urban public parks, The Central Park Lost Mitten Party celebrates the importance of urban public parks ever since Central Park, America's first landscaped urban public park, was established by the New York State Legislature in 1853. Although many readers are familiar with weather reports featuring "The temperature in Central Park is. . . ", this famous "tagline" derives from 1919 when Central Park's National Weather Service Equipment was placed at Belvedere Castle. Here is the latest news:
The Yale School of the Environment is partnering with the Central Park Conservancy and the Natural Areas Conservancy in a first-of-its-kind initiative aimed at helping cities develop strategies to manage and mitigate the impacts of climate change on urban parks." (News Release, January 12, 2022)

Although it will begin in Central Park, the Lab will subsequently expand to create a national network of major metropolitan areas to further the research and work, and share knowledge to mitigate the effects of climate change in cities around the country, supporting the development of strategies to enhance their resilience to climate stressors.
Through this partnership, cities around the country will be provided with tools, resources, and data that can inform their efforts to defend local urban parks and allow them to leverage these vital spaces to protect their cities.
