Garou glyph for Park
Sept of the Green
Central Park, New York City
The Sept of the Green is a sept in New York City's Central park. It is a Fellowship caern currently controlled by the Bone Gnawers. It was originally opened by the Silver Fangs in 1855, during which the first Imperial Moot is called in North America, held on New York City's Manhattan Island. During the Imperial Moot a Rite of Caern Building was enacted, in which the vast number of Garou present supplied an unheard of amount of Gnosis to create a new caern, the Sept of the Green, amidst a city already in the thrall of the Weaver. The revel that followed was also reputably impressive.  In 1856, New York City government set aside an 800-acre area on Manhattan Island for a park, reasoning that the area was impossible to bring business into. Construction of Central Park began in 1858, and continued through 1874. The two most responsible for the design and process, Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmstead, are two unknowing Kinfolk, whose designs permitted the Sept of the Green to survive the transition. The caern was originally a Wendigo caern.  The Silver Fangs lost control of the caern during the Great Depression. All tribes are welcome.
The Sept of the Green is detailed in Werewolf: The Apocalypse Second Edition. Some additional information can be found in Rage Across New York. It is also used as the initial setting for Rite of Passage and in the opening story of Werewolf: The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary Edition.
