Fall Forest Weekend
November 10 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Explore the magnificent fall colors of the Thain Family Forest, the largest remaining tract of old-growth forest in New York City. See faeries plot and lovers quarrel among the foliage in highlights from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (12 & 2 pm), meet inhabitants including live mammals, reptiles, and birds (12 & 2 pm), watch woodcrafting and more autumnal activities. Head to the hildren’s Adventure Garden to see the enormous tree cookies of a giant sequoia and a white oak, participate in other hands-on fun, and take indoor breaks with themed books and toys.
Marvel at model trains zipping around stunning New York landmark replicas made of plant parts such as nuts, bark, and leaves, and enjoy hands-on holiday fun for the entire family (most of it in the climate-controlled indoors).
