Sunset Ecology Tour — Kingland Wildflowers at Broadway Stages


It was a picture-perfect evening for the Sunset Ecology tour and lecture that was held on Friday, June 7 at Kingsland Wildflowers at Broadway Stages. NYC Audubon ecologists presented findings from the past year of monitoring and research at the Kingsland Wildflowers green rooftop. And as you can see from the photos, the weather cooperated, and participants were treated to a beautiful sunset.

Thanks to all who attended and especially to those who arranged the event. Broadway Stages is committed to support environmentally sustainable programs. We are proud to share our rooftop with our community and to partner with environmental organizations who share our passion for green initiatives that positively impact our local ecosystem and environment.

SIEDC Green & Clean Was a Sweep


The Staten Island Zoo was the location of this past weekend's Green & Clean Festival hosted by the Staten Island Economic Development Corporation (SIEDC). A day-long marketplace, sustainable businesses and organizations showcased their services and spread information about sustainability and environmental awareness.

As a member of the Board of SIEDC, Broadway Stages is proud to have supported this event and to help promote the value of sustainability. In fact, our very own green roof project was represented by Niki Jackson of the NYC Audubon on behalf of Kingsland Wildflowers at Broadway Stages, along with Monica Holowacz, Community Relations Director at Broadway Stages.

Fantastic! Go Green Brooklyn Festival


FANTASTIC — the weather, the festivities, the people! This past Saturday, June 1, Town Square hosted their 11th annual Go Green Festival at McCarren Park. It was a picture-perfect day. Exhibitors were on hand with fun and creative activities for all ages. And festival goers were able to sample local food, art, and music while learning about local sustainability initiatives such as the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm. Built atop one of Broadway Stages' film production studios in Greenpoint, this 6,000-square-foot internationally acclaimed green roof is a commercially operated vegetable farm.

Green roofs are an excellent way to advance ecosystem services that are critical to habitat and community. Other green roof projects supported by Broadway Stages include Kingsland Wildflowers, solar panels that offset about a third of our annual electric consumption, and Broadway Stages Green Corridor — in cooperation with Alive Structures — we are in the planning phases of a 1.4 acre green roof project funded through New York State’s Environmental Facilities Corporation's Green Innovation Grant Program.

It's Time to Think About Summer and Camp Brooklyn

The Camp Brooklyn Fund is on a mission to give kids from low-income families in Brooklyn the opportunity to attend sleep-away camp. Why you may ask? Because camp can transform lives, families, and our community. And just $750 will send one child to camp for two amazing weeks during the summer. An experience of a lifetime, camp can open up a world of opportunities and build character. Teamwork, loyalty, wholesome health habits, responsibility, personal respect, and appreciation for nature are all part of a child's education at summer camp.

Please take a few minutes to watch the 2018 Camp Brooklyn Fund video and see for yourself the impact that camp is making on our children. As a member of the board of The Camp Brooklyn Fund, Broadway Stages invites you to support our mission. Please donate today!.
