The bustling two-mile concrete stretch that we call Fourteenth Street was once a glorious expanse of marine meadows, marshes, coastal forests and beaches. It was here that a diverse population of flora and fauna flourished. The story of their eradication is tied to our flooding future. For a limited time only the Forgotten Residents of 14 Street Past return home. Meet the exterminated beaver; greet the extinct passenger pigeon; hear their stories; visit their former neighborhoods; and envision the wetlands of tomorrow. Forgotten Residents of 14 Street Past features sculpture, cut outs and refers to Eric Sanderson’s The Welikia Project.
