About this event

The Horticultural Society of New York presents:

Nature Connections for Kids

Research has found that nature exposure and feeling connected to nature provides a feeling of well-being… so put on a coat and explore nature with us right here in Harlem at the Education Center. Led by our educator Thalia Flores-Perez, who regularly visited Riverbank Park as a kid, we will look at patterns in nature, seed starting, evergreen trees, bird feeders, experiments and land art that bring the outdoors in.
