The Architecture of Trees (Family Program)

Come draw trees to understand how these amazing plants have perfected their own architecture!

Why are trees talented architects? Architects can spend years designing their buildings, but trees have been perfecting their own architecture in response to their environment for eons. On a guided walk in Battery Park City, we will observe and draw the trees around us to understand how they are like skyscrapers! We will learn about how trunks and branches support their leaves or needles and how roots create strong foundations. All ages welcome. RSVP Required.

This in-person program meets at the Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. and is held principally outdoors. The gallery will be accessible: masks are required indoors.

You must reserve a place for your child/family through the Eventbrite button. After registering, you will receive emails to confirm your attendance through a Google Form. If you do not confirm attendance by the Friday morning before the program, your places will be canceled. Every child should be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Family programs are free! Reservation priority is given to The Skyscraper Museum members. Want to become a member? Summer programs are supported by a Community Partnership with the Battery Park City Authority.

Questions? Email or call our office 212-945-6324.
