1:00 p.m.2:30 p.m.

This event repeats every 2 weeks on Saturday between 7/14/2018 and 8/25/2018.

Take a hike through the Ramble 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, hand lenses, and and complementary Discovery Journal.
