This fall, the Prospect Park Alliance has partnered with the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Prospect Park Zoo and Tinkergarten to offer families a range of activities that explore nature in Prospect Park through creative play. Funded through a grant from the Walt Disney Conservation Fund, Nature Playtime! launched this month with weekly programs at the Zoo, as well as special Pop-Up Audubon sessions that recently took place at the Zucker Natural Exploration Area.
Nature Playtime! includes nature-inspired art activities, insect observation, and play with snow, leaves and dirt, among other activities that foster an appreciation of the natural world. The program also includes activity cards that families can use independently in the Park. The first Nature Playtime! card focuses on activities perfect for the last stage of fall foliage. Other cards will be available monthly on our Nature Programs page.
Check out our calendar to learn more about upcoming Nature Playtime! sessions at the Zoo, which will occur every Sunday through April from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.
