Wave Hill

With its views of the Hudson River and Palisades, Wave Hill is often called “one of the greatest living works of art.” This public garden and cultural center focuses on programs that combine art, history, and the natural world. Groups can view Wave Hill’s art collection and then create their own nature-inspired artwork. Students can also take part in outdoor explorations where they learn about some of the issues facing urban woodlands. Younger summer camp groups are welcome to venture through the lush garden, using their senses to make observations.

Botanical Garden Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

The diverse world of plants is perhaps the weirdest, and most fascinating, of all living things. Bamboo can grow over three feet in one day (you can literally watch it grow). There are 600 species of carnivorous plants, which trap and digest insects, frogs, or small birds (if a vegetarian eats this plant, are they still a vegetarian?). The world’s largest flower, Rafflesia, can grow up to three feet in diameter (how big would a bouquet be…). Do a little digging on your next trip to a botanical garden (not literally!), and see what interesting plant facts you can find.
