Visit the Environmental Education Center during open hours to explore activities and exhibits curated around monthly environmental themes — say hello to live animals native to New York, peruse our reading library, make crafts, play science-based games, check out a cove kit, and more!
Note: While open hours at the Ed Center are temporarily postponed, check out our virtual open hours series, themed crafts, scavenger hunts, and other self-led resources for at-home learning opportunities.
CHECK OUT A COVE KIT
TAKE LEARNING OUTSIDE
During our Public Open Hours you can borrow a COVE KIT to help reveal the hidden stories of Brooklyn Bridge Park. These activity backpacks are great for families that want to explore and experience science outside in the park!
These kits are filled with several family-friendly items such as an activity booklet and crayons, nature field guides, binoculars, and more!
PICK UP/ DROP-OFF
Kits can be signed out at the welcome table and must be returned at least 30 minutes before the end of open hours. We will request contact information and a form of ID to hold at the desk while you make use of the kit. Paper materials are entirely for your use, but we ask that all other materials are returned in the state they were found, ready for the next user.
