Fort Tryon Kids: Earthworms with APEC

Join the Fort Tryon Park Trust and experts from the Alley Pond Environmental Center for this FREE nature program!  Earthworms teach young children sensitivity to living things and illustrate the interdependency of life. Curious students will “dig for worms” as they interact with and handle these often misunderstood creatures. Through hands-on activities, engaging discussion and crafts, children will learn the earthworms’ physical characteristics, diet, habits, and special adaptations.
