Scavengers & Decomposers Weekend

October 19, 20, 2019

Hooray for decay! Get your hands dirty—literally—as you explore the process of decomposition at Wave Hill. Investigate the forest floor in the Herbert and Hyonja Abrons Woodland, handle real-life scavengers and decomposers, visit the Boneyard, get composting info and even make wearable art inspired by decomposers. Something is rottin’ in Riverdale—and in your neighborhood, too!

Admission to the grounds this weekend is $12 adults, $8 students and seniors 65+, $6 children 6–18. Reciprocal benefits, guest and family passes are not accepted. As always, admission is free to Wave Hill Members and children under six.
