Explore the magnificent fall colors of the Thain Family Forest, the largest remaining tract of old-growth forest in New York City. Hear NYBG Composer-in Residence Angélica Negrón’s newly commissioned, site-specific work, an original series of interactive choral experiences and rich, layered soundscapes that give a voice to the surrounding trees. (1 & 3 pm). Also meet inhabitants including live mammals, reptiles, and birds (12 & 2 pm), watch woodcrafting and more autumnal activities. Head to the Children’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.
