Outdoors, meet at The Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. 

Architects can spend years designing their buildings, but trees have been perfecting their own architecture in response to their environment for eons. On a walk through Wagner Park, in Battery Park City, we will draw the trees around us to understand their likeness to skyscrapers! The structures of trees and skyscrapers have a lot in common and we will learn about how trunks and branches support their leaves or needles and how roots create strong foundations. Recommended for 2nd-5th grade. 

This program meets at the Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. and is held principally outdoors. The gallery will be accessible: masks are required indoors. For outdoor activities, we follow current NYS guidelines

You must reserve a place for your child/family through the Eventbrite button. Every child should be accompanied by a parent/guardian. The maximum number of households per program is 20. In the event of bad weather, we will notify you via Eventbrite. 

Family programs are free! Reservation priority is given to Skyscrapers Museum members and residents of Battery Park City. Summer programs are supported by a Community Partnership with the Battery Park City Authority.
