Tour the Wild Side of Brooklyn With WNYC and Nature Blogger Matthew Wills

Brooklynite Matthew Wills is a nature blogger who writes about wild life in Brooklyn for Backyard and Beyond, and it’s more than just rats.

In Brooklyn? Yes, as a matter of fact, in Brooklyn, NY, where, you may be surprised to learn, a great host of life-forms are to be found. In these pages (of blog), I will be exploring the life I discover in what I call the Back 40, a small patch of concrete out back, as well as the wider range of Brooklyn and the rest of NYC, and places beyond.

In this video from WNYC, Wills leads a brief tour of Brooklyn’s plants and wildlife on a short nature walk.
