The scenic Wave Hill gardens, perched high above the Hudson, are the perfect spot to celebrate Mother's Day with your brood. On Saturday, kids and moms can work together to make fragrant lavender pillows and thoughtful notes, then check out botanical fragrances from Thorn & Bloom Perfume and fine jewelery by Kimberlin Brown in the gift shop—don't forget that admission is free until noon! Get up early on Sunday to jump in on a spring birding walk through the gardens and woodlands (ages 10 and older) or drop by in the afternoon for a family nature walk with naturalist Gabriel Willow (ages 6 and up). For a special treat, indulge in a festive brunch at the historic Wave Hill House (seatings at 10:30am and 1:30pm) or pack a picnic to eat on the Conifer Slope. The art project and artisan shopping will be available on Sunday as well. Make brunch reservations before noon on May 4. All ages.
