Drop-In Gardening Activities
Explore the Edible Academy’s fall bounty with a scavenger hunt and learn how we prepare the garden for the winter season ahead. Discover how to collect and save seeds with your own take-home seed packet, and spread out and relax under our colorful umbrellas on the Burke Amphitheater lawn.
Drop-In Nature Exploration
When the Garden fully reopens, the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden will welcome visitors of all ages to a playful space. Here there are countless opportunities for all children of all ages to explore the wonders of science and nature.
Birthday parties at the Garden are fun and educational, offering full packages including instructor-led activities, party materials, food and drinks, and more!
Registered Family Programs
Learn about science, nature, and gardening, in a series of live, online workshops. More than a dozen virtual field trips are available.
These fun, interactive live workshops led by NYBG educators allow children to experience—and ask questions about—the woodlands, wetlands and meadows around the Garden, as well as our collection of desert plants in the Conservatory.
