Restoring the Urban ForestGrades: 6 through 12Seasons offered: Fall, Winter and SpringProgram Details ›
Within its five boroughs, New York City has an estimated 10,000 acres of natural areas. These areas include thriving ecosystems and provide habitat to a surprisingly diverse group of plants and animals.
Learn about the importance of these areas—particularly in a dense urban setting—and what we can do to protect these critical resources. Using Wave Hill’s own 8-acre woodland as a living laboratory, students explore current issues relating to forest regeneration, wildlife habitat and management, and existing threats, as they do their own data collection and analysis
This program is also offered FREE for qualifying schools as part of the new initative, Con Edison's STEM Days Out.
