Sustainable Saturday Workshops
One Saturday each month, Green Generations will be offering 2-hour workshops from 10 am to 12 pm from May to October to children 8-12 years old. Each of these workshops will have an eco-friendly theme to teach children about sustainability and cultivate a love for nature. Each workshop will be held at St Mary's Park and drop-off/pick-up will be in front of the St Mary's Recreation Center entrance. There will be a maximum of 10 children per group and workshops will be held rain or shine. If by chance there is severe weather, you will be notified of a cancellation.
This program was created with support from Partnerships for Parks, a joint program of NYC Parks and City Parks Fundation.
