Fort Greene Park Visitors Center

Presented By


Teachers and their guests can join the New York Academy of Sciences and the Urban Park Rangers for an afternoon to explore geology of Fort Greene Park. You may not know that New York City has a unique and wondrous geological history. From ancient bedrock to rumbling fault lines, the geology of the City is easily accessible to students and teachers through the Parks Department.

Teachers will experience a walking tour of the geology of Ft. Greene Park and learn about the incredible resources of the Urban Park Rangers.

The Urban Park Rangers’ mission is to link New Yorkers to the natural world. Rangers teach people to care for the environment and the parks, protect the parks and their wild residents, and restore New York City’s natural heritage.

Science teacher members are welcome to bring up to three guests, so please bring your family, colleagues, or students.
