Young Naturalists Program at McGolrick Park


Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10am to 2 pm.
Classes run from 10am to 11 am, and educators are on hand until 2pm

Find the naturalists on the south side of the pavilion.

The Horticultural Society of New York is behind a major renovation about to begin in the park, which will involve reconditioning lawns, restoring garden beds, improving the dog run as well as engaging the community in stewarding the park. The youngest community members are invited to the park this July and August to participate in the Young Naturalist Program for hands-on gardening activities designed to enhance understanding of the natural world in an urban setting.

Bring your little environmentalists to learn about park critters (Tuesdays), paint in the park (Wednesdays), exploration walks (Thursdays), gardening (Fridays) and planting workshops (Saturdays).
