Family Science Day at New York Botanical Garden

Explore special programs for our Urban Advantage community and our current exhibitions. Collect macroinvertebrates at the Bronx River, join hands-on gardening activities at the Edible Academy and the African American Garden: The Caribbean Experience. Take a spooky stroll through Scarecrows & Pumpkins at the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden.

Family Science Days serve as a kickoff to our Urban Advantage program year, and is meant to get our schools, students and families excited about science and to create a memorable experience at our museums, gardens and zoos. Each of our eight UA institutions hosts a Family Science Day during the month of October. It is our hope that Family Science Day will spark student interest in science and inspire them to return to our institutions on their own.
