Learn with Wave Hill

Wave Hill offers year-round educational programs for school groups Pre-K through 12th grade and camp groups ages 3 to 14 that foster connections between students and the flora, fauna and land around them. Each program is designed to help students situate themselves in the classroom, the city and the natural world, and empower students to take action on behalf of these communities. Wave Hill’s hands-on programs access and align with NGSS, Scope and Sequence and Common Core learning standards through scientific investigations, mindfulness practices, social-emotional learning and the arts.

New: Nature Activities for Home Learning

In this time of teaching, learning, working and entertaining our families at home, Wave Hill’s Education Department is providing some fun and engaging activities families can do together or teachers can incorporate into their remote learning lessons. They are a way to stay connected to nature, even when you can’t visit Wave Hill or another garden in person!
