If you're thinking of sleeping under the stars this summer, the Urban Park Rangers are ready to teach you everything you need to know before you pitch your tent for your first night in the woods.

Please note: Outdoor programs are offered with limited attendance so that you can have a safe and enjoyable time in parks. Based on New York State guidance for sports and recreation during COVID-19, protocols are in place to keep participants and staff safe and healthy:

  • Stay home if you're sick
  • Maintain six feet of physical distance between households
  • Wear a face covering
  • Wash your hands

Additionally, participants are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer to park programs.
