This fall, get up close and personal with plants, bugs, and more in the Hallett Nature Sanctuary! Discovery Club families will enjoy exclusive access to Central Park's most secluded woodland—a unique living laboratory!

Adults and children alike will take part in an immersive woodland adventure, exploring how people, plants, and wildlife thrive in an urban park. "Insider's view" activities related to park design, horticulture, and gardening culminate with an opportunity to get your hands dirty with a Park improvement project. This five-part series is perfect for families with children in grades 1-4.

Each participating child receives a Discovery Kit (a kid-friendly backpack that contains binoculars, a magnifying glass, field guides, and other discovery tools), along with a Field Notebook, and a Discovery Journal.

Space is limited. Advance registration is required.
