Freshkills On-the-Move

The Freshkills Parks Alliance offers a variety of traveling programs that will come to you! In addition to our virtual programs, we have the following in-person offerings available upon request:

Hands-on Workshops

The following workshops are generally suggested for K-12.  

Nature Journaling: Observe the natural world and learn about native plants through micro and macro drawing using microscopes and magnifying glasses.

Park Planning: Learn about the collaborative process of park development and design your own park model using reclaimed materials.  

Mobile Education Lab

The Mobile Education Lab is a nature center on wheels. Inside are materials necessary for people of all ages to investigate the history, ecology and engineering of Freshkills Park: field guides, microscopes, historical maps, samples of the landfill cap, videos, and much more. NYC Parks facilitates youth activities in the Lab, answers questions from the community, and educates the public about the landfill-to-park transformation.

While visiting interior sections of Freshkills Park can only be done through an event or tour, the Mobile Lab connects the local community to the park in places where they already live, work and play. 

The Mobile Education Lab is temporarily unavailable.
