Watson Adventures’ High Line at Sunset Scavenger Hunt

Join Watson Adventures on a unique scavenger hunt for adults in the Meatpacking District! Sunset is the most dramatic time to enjoy the views atop New York’s unique park, the High Line, built atop an old elevated railway. This becomes the spine of your quest to explore the Meatpacking District, the trendy neighborhood that has sprung from an area of warehouses and historic buildings. Aside from a stroll along the High Line’s gardens amidst old rails, highlights include the Chelsea Market, glitzy new restaurants, boutiques, a hotel that took in survivors from the Titanic, movie locations and more. A smartphone is required for each team to participate.

Wildflower Day

Come and get your hands dirty! Activities include Diggin’ in The Dirt, a child-led exploration of living soils in our children’s garden; the annual Ladybug Release Party to learn about insects; Seed Bombs: a hands-on lesson on the Lower East Side’s cultural heritage of environmental art and activism; and tour our native flora garden. There’s also a native seed and plant exchange and sale. Stuyvesant Cove Park is a 1.9 acre, organically maintained, public park. Using only native plants promotes awareness of and pride in our unique local flora.
