Index for Album F-1999-11-13: Foraging in Prospect Park - Nov 13, 1999

Foraging in Prospect Park. These pictures were actually taken a week later, but are based on a "Wildman" Steve Brill tour given on 13 Nov 99. It follows the tour, but not all are included. I couldn't find some, and others were skipped as they appear in Cunningham Park.
