at Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, NY Botanical Garden, Bronx
Children of all ages
– Sundays and Monday holidays: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm.
Throughout the season, children dissect plant parts such as seeds
and flowers, experiment to find out if plants make sugar to use
as food, investigate bugs that help plants grow, use microscopes
to see plants up close, press flowers and plants to take home,
and much more. We encourage children to explore, examine, inquire
and question just like scientists. A few of the many things children
discover include, what’s in a flower by taking it apart and putting
it back together – and children have an opportunity to look at
things through a bee’s eye view!
