On Earth Day 2018 the LES Ecology Center aims to show New Yorkers the plants and animals that are living in their own backyard and teach them ways that they can all be a part of making New York greener.

The Fire Boat House will be open all weekend for hands on activities and learning with Nicolle Martinez, their Environmental Educator and Melinda Billings, their Stewardship Coordinator. All events are free and open to the public, no RSVP required. Please meet at our Education Center in the Fire Boat House.
