APEC Explorers Summer Program at Alley Pond Environmental Center

Bugs, birds, and plants – oh my! Alley Pond Environmental Center has a great summer program going on called APEC Explorers for kids in 2nd and 3rd grades that focuses on nature.

Kids will explore Alley Pond Park to see woodlands, wetlands, meadows, and pond habitats. They’ll listen for birds, crickets, cicadas and more, while learning more about animals and plants that live in the park. They will use science tools, play games, keep a journal and work on special projects, plus kids will help care for the animals at APEC! This is the perfect summer program for kids who are interested in nature and animals. It creates an increased awareness of their environment.

Bug repellent is a must. Snacks are included.

Each week, the program is limited to 12 kids.  Pre-registration is required. Call 718-229-4000 to register.
