Queens Botanical Garden is beaming with life and wonder in the winter!

Snowing & Growing embraces all that winter has to offer for wildlife, plants, and humans too! Explore how our ecosystem changes during the cold season and learn how nature’s creatures survive and thrive in winter. Each session will be packed with fun outdoor nature exploration and hands-on indoor activities that will foster curiosity and love for nature. Together, we will investigate what grows and blooms during the cold season, what happens to the soil under the snow, and much more.

This program is for drop-off only and takes place both outdoors and indoors. Masks are required for all participants while indoors.
