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

Ponds are home to many aquatic invertebrates, plants, and other species. Get hands-on, using dip nets to comb the pond, and learn all about these species. Some of the species identified will be used as data for City Nature Challenge 2021, a celebration of the healing power of nature. This event celebrates tens of thousands of people all around the world, searching for and documenting their local biodiversity. 

Please note: We are offering outdoor programs with limited attendance so that you can have a safe and enjoyable time in parks. Based on New York State guidance for sports and recreation during COVID-19, we’ve put protocols into place to keep our participants and staff safe and healthy. We're asking everyone to help us stay safe:

  • Stay home if you're sick
  • Maintain six feet of physical distance between households
  • Wear a face covering
  • Wash your hands

Additionally, we encourage participants to bring their own hand sanitizer to our programs.
