Newtown Creek Nature Walk Guided Tour


Join DEP Educators for an outdoor guided tour of the Newtown Creek Nature Walk. Guided tours are 90 minutes and feature different points of interest and hands-on activities throughout the half-mile Nature Walk.

DEP Educators will tailor your field trip experience to the grade/age of your students and classroom curriculum standards. This program can be an add-on option for scheduled programs at the Visitor Center at Newtown Creek or a standalone tour. Resource materials are also available for self-guided tours of the Nature Walk, including a Scavenger Hunt booklet and brochure.

Please Note: if visiting on your own, you do not need to register on Explorable Places.
