Ever wonder how your favorite park's trees survive big city life? Join environmental educator, Robin Sanchez, in an exploration of plant survival strategies in an urban park! Kids will participate in a fun group investigation of plant characteristics fit for survival, allowing kids to observe and examine plants found in Inwood Hill Park.
This is part of the series of six programs for children aged 8 to 12 years. Using a playful approach and the investigative method, kids will learn about their local parks and their flora and fauna.
