The Alley Pond Environmental Center is temporarily cancelling all programs scheduled for the week of Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 20th. The safety of our staff and visitors is our top priority and we are making some adjustments based on government regulations for public density. This action is being taken to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19; and following declarations of states of emergency in New York State and New York City. Cancelled programs include:
ALL Early Childhood classes including: Toddler Time, Sunny Bunnies, Wee Sprouts, and Just Hatched
ALL Adult programs and clubs
ALL school field trips to APEC
ALL outreach programs to schools and community centers
Programs will be rescheduled to the best of our ability. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us directly at (718) 229-4000 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
While APEC remains open, we are frequently sanitizing public spaces and surfaces, limiting staff travel, reminding everyone about the importance of frequent handwashing and other common hygiene practices, and asking those who are sick to stay home.
The environmental center is located in Alley Pond Park, surrounded by lush nature trails where visitors can enjoy NYC's natural landscapes. Guests are welcome to attend one of APEC's many nature oriented programs for all ages and visit the center's animal ambassadors. Please explore our website to learn more and register for programs.
