The Battery Conservancy’s educational experiences take advantage of The Battery’s rich history and biodiverse landscapes. These include a vegetable farm, a food forest of native plants, New York Harbor waterfront, toxin-free lawns, and the largest perennial gardens in North America that are free and open to the public every day of the year.
Programs are available for all ages. Education programs for K-12 students align with Core Curriculum State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
