  • specimens to explore, including rocks, feathers, bones, moss, water samples, and more;
  • a nature-sounds listening station;
  • microscopes and magnifying glasses;
  • water-color pencils, brushes, and instructions about techniques of biological drawing;
  • a nature rubbing activity;
  • science books to read;
  • staff, volunteers, and educators to facilitate.

The program has been developed in partnership with the Harlem-based HYPOTHEkids, a K-12 nonprofit science organization.
