Safety is our priority; this program is temporarily suspended. Please check back for updates or learn more about kid and family activities through Virtual Workshops.


For Caregivers and Children Ages 2–3

Toddlers love adventures! Come along with your little one on a guided hike to discover the best spots in the Garden in each season. This hour-long program is designed for young children and their caregivers to explore areas of NYBG that have a scale and seasonal interest just right for little nature lovers. Each session includes songs, stories, and take-home projects. Please note: One adult must attend with the registered child. Meet at the entrance to the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden.
