About the Event

Although Theodore Roosevelt Island looks like it developed naturally over thousands of years, it is actually a designed landscape. Architects at the Olmsted Brothers Firm and workers from Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps cleared, graded, and replanted it to look "real."

Each of the island's trails passes through—and is named after—one of the habitats they created.
