Little Friends of Orchard Beach
Little Friends of Orchard Beach is a program based on the flora, fauna, and archaeological history of Pelham Bay Park and Orchard Beach. Students learn about the largest park in New York City, which contains the only beach in the Bronx, while examining the role that the Native American Siwanoy played in the environmental development of the area.
Our newest after-school program, held at Roberto Clemente State Park, invites children to imagine, design, and prototype art that will inspire actual site-specific installations in the new Museum facility, which will then be created by local commissioned artists.
