Earth Weekend at Wave Hill

Our favorite botanical escape in the city, Wave Hill, is celebrating Ma Earth with a weekend full of special garden walks, tours, and nature-themed performances and activities. Bring the kids for Saturday's reading of The Lorax where tots can make their own trees out of recycled materials. Take some time to yourself on Sunday for a peaceful walk through the gardens with naturalist Gabriel Willow leading a group in nature journaling. (Most Free with admission. Sat.-Sun., Apr. 21-22. See calendar for times. 675 West 252nd Street, Bronx.)
