We connect children with nature to encourage active exploration of the natural world. Children who spend time outdoors develop strong imaginations and learn to socialize better with others. Urban Park Rangers are role models who encourage children to let their imaginations run wild in a safe, supportive atmosphere. While most of our programs are family friendly, the programs highlighted here are specifically for young children and families. Whether enjoying a family friendly movie under the stars, freeing your imagination playing in nature, or learning about conservation through eco-crafts, a free Ranger program is the perfect addition to your family’s weekend.

The ancient sport of archery is an activity just about anyone can participate in. Archery helps to improve your concentration and develop your mental discipline. Like any new skill, archery requires practice and patience to master. Urban Park Ranger-led archery programs sharpen these skills while connecting you with nature by getting you outdoors. Archery is also a great way to build upper body strength and to stay fit! Our trained Rangers will demonstrate the safe and proper way to draw a bow, shoot an arrow, and focus on the target. Discover Archery for yourself and learn to hit your mark!

Families and children, ages 8 years and older, are welcome to participate in our archery programs. Programs are first-come, first-served. Participation in a mandatory safety review led by a trained Ranger is required. All equipment is provided and personal archery equipment is not allowed.

<![CDATA[The Old Stone House and Light and Sound Concerts Present: The Klopotic/Pierce/Zoernig Trio]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/04/06/the-old-stone-house-and-light-and-sound-concerts-present-the-klopoticpiercezoernig-trio http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/04/06/the-old-stone-house-and-light-and-sound-concerts-present-the-klopoticpiercezoernig-trio Date: April 6, 2013

Violinist Julianne Klopotic, Pianist Joshua Pierce, and Cellist Lawrence Zoernig join forces to pay honor to one of the original social misfits of his time, Franz Schubert. Eccentric, didactic, this short lived but prolific composer contributed some of the most beloved song cycles and chamber music works of all time. Haunting melodies mixed with explosive exuberance make for a musical journey the ears and heart remember. Klopotic/Pierce/Zoernig bring to Schubert their own eclectic musical backgrounds, drawing the listener into both a dignified and internal experience of these two monumental works.
