Join for this free, outdoor program generously funded by local councilmembers through NYC Parks. A warm thank you to Councilmember Barry Grodenchik for his continued support of this program.

During each program we will go on a walk, do something kind for the forest, and make something creative. We’ll use our senses to learn surprising and wonderful things about nature in our city parks. This is a drop off program. Take-homes like backpacks, notebooks, pens, and all other materials included.

Location: In Alley Pond Park by Springfield Blvd and 76th near the playground and restroom.

Dates: Sundays 6/23, 6/30, 7/14, and 7/21
