School Groups/Field Trips in the Park

Lessons about the world can be learned through research and observations in Van Cortlandt Park. Natural science concepts, American history, physical education and visual and language arts can all be explored.

For teachers not yet comfortable leading groups of children in the great outdoors, there are experts ready to help. The Urban Park Rangers, CityParks Foundation, Van Cortlandt House Museum, Friends of Van Cortlandt Park, and NYC Audubon all have curriculum developed specifically for Van Cortlandt Park and are eager to share it with students.
