Our Urban Park Rangers will be your guides to the solar system, discussing the science, history, and folklore of the universe. Astronomy programs feature the use of telescopes and binoculars to observe specific astronomical events. Jupiter will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. The best time to view Jupiter and its moons!
Urban Park Rangers Nature Centers are your gateway to New York City parks. Each serves as an in–park community center for public education, recreational activities, and environmental studies. The centers serve as starting points for walking tours and workshop sites for educational programs for the whole family.
This winter, join us for the Nature's Workshop series. Winter is the best time to learn about weather, weather anomalies, and our changing climate through some fun weather experiments and outdoor exploration.
