Is your child looking for a new habitat to investigate? Then let them get down in the mud in this program from New York Botanical Gardens. Local marshes, wetlands, ponds and rivers are breeding grounds for all sorts of animal and plant life with fascinating ecologies. Campers can “get their feet wet” (don’t worry, they wear special boots and rubber overalls when wading through algae and the like) collecting samples and making observations for scientific discoveries. Kids who prefer dry land can also check out the conservatory’s Forest Adventure Camp, which sticks to woodlands, and Plant Explorer Camp, during which plants are taken to the lab. Ages 4–10.
