Enjoy the Season with Fall Programs at Queens Botanical Garden
Fall Foliage Highlights
Queens Botanical Garden features 39 acres of area to explore. Wander among the trees and see the color shift of autumn as oaks, maples, and dogwoods show off their finest display of hues. See if you can spot the flaming red sumac, the colorful oak leaf hydrangea, or the woodsy-scented witch hazel.
20 class sessions, held September 13th to November 22nd, will teach children about the wonder and beauty of nature. Led by experienced educators following the Forest School model, your kids will get immersed in exploration and discovery, deepening their understanding and appreciation of this earth we all share.
NYC Honey Week: Buzz on Bees
This workshop all about bees and honey is for families of every age. Learn facts about these helpful creatures, taste some sweet honey, and make your very own beeswax candle. The event will happen September 17 and also includes a tour of the Bee Garden, so you can see worker bees in action.
Fall Gardening Programs for Kids
Fall programs at Queens Botanical Garden for kids will teach them all about growing, harvesting, and eating fresh produce. The “Children’s Garden” is for ages 4-10 and will provide a gardening experience from seed to table. Meanwhile, “Garden Buds” is for ages 2-3 and takes a simpler approach, letting toddlers play, explore, and taste veggies in the garden. These Queens Botanical Garden events will give children an appreciation for where their food comes from.
