Bill Nye “The Science Guy” wants you to “Find Your Park.”
The engineer and television personality is known for his outspoken views on climate change, space exploration and evolution, but the environmental champion is now turning his attention to our nation's parks as a National Parks Service centennial ambassador.
New Yorkers can join Nye and DJ Questlove on Monday in Brooklyn Bridge Park for a special celebration and lots of dancing that will connect people to each other, their city and, Nye hopes, their green spaces.
Why did you decide to get involved with the “Find Your Park” event?
I’m an ambassador for the National Parks for the 100th anniversary. This is an opportunity to promote the anniversary and we encourage everybody to “find your park.” There are a dozen [national] parks in New York City, over 400 parks in the United States. So, find your park! Go out there! Party on!
