Special Nature Play Events at Grasshopper Grove

Grasshopper Grove is the Hudson Valley’s first Nature Play space of its kind where children can hop from stump to stump, climb a fallen tree, paint with water, build in the sand and dirt pile and much more! The goal of these events is to spark creativity and love of nature through fun, themed activities appropriate for young children. Our Nature Play events are designed to provide an opportunity for our youngest Museum visitors to play in nature, learn a little bit about their natural environment, and then take those play ideas home with them. These programs are recommended for families with children ages 3 and up.
