Our Environmental Education Workshops are a great way to introduce nature into your curricula and many provide Common Core support (look for the red apple icon!).

  • Workshops start promptly and last approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on the workshop of your choice.  Each workshop includes an outdoor component, a discussion, and a hands-on activity. 
  • Maximum class size is limited to 30 students.  Special Education class size is limited to 15 students.
  • Workshops and tours are offered Mondays through Fridays and run rain or shine.  Please have your students dress appropriately for the weather.
  • Tours are entirely outdoor experiences that are 1 hour long, unless otherwise indicated.
  • Workshop and tour fees include one adult chaperone per 5 students for Pre-K classes, and one adult per 10 students for grades K and above.  This does not apply to Special Education classes.
  • Advance registration and pre-paymnt are required for all programs.  To register, please email or call 718.886.3800, ext. 230.
