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

Get "lost" with us in the Ramble! Explore how this carefully planned woodland provides habitat for a variety of wildlife. Discover who calls the forest floor, the Lake shoreline, and the treetops their home.

Discovery Walks for Families are a great way for parents and children of all ages to learn about the nature and history of Central Park in fun and creative ways. Join us for hands-on exploration using Discovery Kits – backpacks filled with kid-friendly binoculars, field guides, hand lenses, and a complementary Discovery Journal.
