Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Take a hike through the North Woods and learn how to tell a maple from an oak! Discover how trees - from seeds and leaves to logs - contribute to the health of an urban park woodland community.

Bring your family for a guided walk and discover why Central Park is a sanctuary for plants, animals, and humans alike. Learn about the architecture, landscapes, and ecosystems of the Park through hands-on exploration using Discovery Kits – rugged backpacks filled with kid-friendly binoculars, field guides, and hand lenses.

Pre-registration required as space is limited. Families with children ages 5+ only; no groups, please. Please arrive at walk location 15 minutes before the start of the Discovery Walk to allow time for check in and to pick up Discovery Kits.

Terrain: Uneven, with hills, stairs, and wood-chipped trails; may not be suitable for strollers.
