These homeschool programs are geared for children ages 5-12. If you have an early childhood or middle/high school group, please contact us directly and we can customize a program for you! Led by seasoned APEC educators, these workshops will include an indoor orientation on a topic of your choice, a hands on live animal demonstration, and a guided interpretive nature walk through our trails. These tailor-made programs are 90 minutes. APEC requires all homeschool groups to have one parent act as coordinator for trips. This parent alone will be responsible for handling deposit and balance of payment to APEC.
To schedule a trip, please call Karen Donahue at 718-229-4000 ext. 210.
Please see our homeschool brochure for more information:
The environmental center is located in Alley Pond Park, surrounded by lush nature trails where visitors can enjoy NYC's natural landscapes.
