TSPTIP Print Map 9 12 12

    I'll be conducting a free tree identification walk next Saturday the 15th of September at 11AM. Rain date Sunday the 16th.
    Meet at East 8th Street and Avenue B, inside the park . Contact: Michael Natale gammanyc at gmail.com.
    Print your own map: 300 dpi 8x10.5 inches hi-res. tsptip.org/TSPTIP-Map.html Best printed on glossy photo paper, but it will show adequately on ordinary printer paper.
    But there is no need to print your own map. I plan on bringing a large version of the map with me for the walk.
    I would especially like help from local botanist, gardeners and tree lovers in general in completing and correcting the tree identifications I've made so far. I started this project last Summer, because I wanted to learn the names of the trees in the park. The maps I found were long out of date, so I decided to make my own. I'm confident with about 90% of my identifications but I'm hoping to bring it up to 100% with the help of my neighbors.
    I've decided to release the map under a Creative Commons license - Atribution - Non-Commercial. So you will be welcome to download and print your own map, and teachers will be able to use it freely in classes, etc.

      Hi. I'm Dory Bergman, the artist on the 1998 Tompkins Square Park tree identification map, now out-of-date. I love your new map, and wonder whether you'd be willing or able to come into my kindergarten class (I'm a teacher) in the East Village, and speak to my students about your work mapping the trees. We are studying trees, and Tompkins Square Park is our woodland. My email address is e8dory@aol.com.
      Thank you!!
