A healthy forest has helpers to ensure the circle of life goes on. Using fun games and experiments, join the Prospect Park Alliance to uncover the secrets of soil creatures, fungus and decomposition.

  • Adventure Hike, 12–1 pm: Prospect Park Alliance naturalists will introduce you to the natural history of Prospect Park and its hidden trails. Recommended for families with children 5 years and older.
  • Nature on the Go!, 1–2 pm: Join Alliance naturalists on a search under the soil to learn about the secret lives of Leaf Litter Critters. Participants can even take home their very own compost bin.
  • Nature’s Helpers, 2–3 pm: Did you know that trees help trees? After learning how mulch protects tree roots, spend time spreading wood chips around trees.
  • Family Bird Watching, 3–4 pm: After learning how to use binoculars, join our naturalists to identify some of the 250 species of birds that call Prospect Park home.
