New York Botanical Garden | Bronx, NY
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Give city kids a chance to get their hands dirty and explore lush landscapes on this 250-acre expanse. Family programs educate kids (and adults) on our connection to nature, while the Edible Academy teaches children about gardening and healthy living through workshops, scavenger hunts and crafts in the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden.
In terms of classes, little ones ages 3 to 5 will love getting hands-on in the Garden Sprouts program after a morning at preschool. Each Wednesday afternoon, they’re put to work digging for wiggly worms, planting seeds, and harvesting. Their experience in the garden will even inspire cool craft projects and nutritious snacks that they’ll make and nibble on.
