Architects can spend years designing their buildings, but trees have been perfecting their own architecture in response to their environment for eons. On a walk through Wagner Park, in Battery Park City, we will draw the trees around us to understand their likeness to skyscrapers! The structures of trees and skyscrapers have a lot in common and we will learn about how trunks and branches support their leaves or needles and how roots create strong foundations. Recommended for 2nd-5th grade. This program meets at the Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. and is held principally outdoors. You must reserve a place for your child/family through the Eventbrite button. Every child should be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
