After School Outdoors!
Fall Nature and Gardening in Prospect Park!
We pick kids up from schools and bus stops and accept park drop-offs!
Registration is now open!
Kids will learn about the close connection between appreciating nature and working for social justice. We will ask: What is the kind — and just — way to treat plants, animals, and people?
Each week, we focus on one native plant or animal and learn about its history. We will also learn how they are used by Native American tribes and historically used by enslaved Africans. All ages will learn how to garden in a way that respects the earth and future generations, including fun projects like tree care, take-home plants, learning to identify native animals often labeled as “pests” and caring for and identifying native and endangered plants which are often mistaken for weeds. Older kids will discuss the link to today’s movements for climate and environmental justice, racial justice, and justice for incarcerated people.
In short, we have fun in nature while learning to do good!
