Time Out says

Built in 1905, Prospect Park’s Beaux Arts–style boathouse was one of the first buildings in New York City to be declared a landmark. In 2002, it became the home of the nation’s first urban Audubon Center. The state-of-the-art facility features interactive exhibits that allow visitors to virtually explore the great outdoors. Parties include a choice of activity: Take a guided walk with a naturalist, go for a narrated tour on the electric boat Independence (April to October) or make an age-appropriate craft project, such as animal masks or puppets. The center is available Saturdays and Sundays year-round. $375 without electric boat tour, $475 with electric boat tour; both for 28 kids.
