This month we are celebrating all things trees! Join us for a Tree Giveaway in partnership with New York Restoration Project.
Visitors will be able to pick up a free tree to be planted within one of the five boroughs. Afterwards, get your hand dirty in our Black Walnut Ink Workshop! We’ll crush, boil, and turn black walnuts into ink! Families will be able to test out the ink they’ve made and see the process from start to finish.
The Tree Giveaway will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., followed by our Black Walnut Ink Workshop at 1:00 p.m.
Pre-register option for the Tree Giveaway available here.
Drop in every third Saturday of the month between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to explore New York City’s oldest house together. Arrive by 1:00 p.m. for a unique hands-on making activity each month.
Seasonal activities inside the historic house and around the gardens include scavenger hunts, artifact investigation, gardening, self-guided exploration, and hands-on activities.
Family Day is open to everyone. Activities are designed for families with kids ages 4 to 10. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No reservation required.
