1. The arrival of spring means lots of great outdoor activities, but Prospect Park staff wants to remind visitors that feeding the waterfowl is not one of them.

Now you know!
2. The members of Compost for Brooklyn will be joining their cohorts over at Sustainable Flatbush on April 17th for an evening of talking dirt—specifically, Brooklyn Dirt. The event will be led by members of both groups, who will share advice on founding, motivating and evaluating for grass roots organizations. More information is available here.

5. Alternate side parking rules will be suspended Thursday through Saturday for Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Passover.
