Take advantage of one of the city’s biggest and best backyards, and send your kids out to explore the 250-acre wilds of the New York Botanical Garden. Weekly themes (Art in Nature, Forest Adventure and Wild Wetlands) inspire outdoor explorations and related indoor activities, like science experiments, games and crafts. Kids hike through the NYBG’s 50 acres of native forest on a scavenger hunt, find artistic inspiration in the gardens, and examine the unique wildlife that inhabits the wetlands of the nearby Bronx River. Ages 5–10.
