Enjoy NHM’s one-of-a-kind Nature Gardens while learning more about urban wildlife. A Museum Educator is available for one hour to guide you through a Nature Garden Exploration such as birding, bug netting, nature journaling and more! 

Visitors of all ages are welcome to stop by anytime during the hour and stay as long or short as you’d like! Find us on Level G outside at the pond deck or bird viewing platform in the Nature Gardens.
