What: Film Festival at the Audubon Center
Where: 95 Prospect Park, Prospect Park Boathouse
When: Feb. 16-22, 12:00pm-3:30 pm
Why: It’s reality TV, for animals. That means drama, wildlife style. More than 10 years in the making, the Discovery Channel’s “Planet Earth” series tracks some of nature’s most elusive and intriguing animals, from birds of paradise to the endangered Amur leopard. Bryant Park may be mobbed this week, but Prospect Park has the real cat(s) walk.
How to get there: Prospect Park is easily accessible by mass transit: Take the F, 2, 3, Q, S or B trains, or the B41, B71, B69, B75 and B68 bus lines. You’ll want to take a seat in the Con Edison Discover Nature Theater. For detailed directions from anywhere on Manhattan, click the HopStop link below.
