Seaport Kids S+25
Climate Workshop

Arts and crafts—on the water? Yes, it’s all aboard the tall ship Wavertree for this special Seaport Kids x Climate Workshop presented by the South Street Seaport Museum, + POOL, and Mommy Poppins.

Climate Week NYC isn’t just for adults. This event invites kids to come aboard the Seaport Museum’s 1885 tall ship Wavertree, which is permanently moored at Pier 16, for a hands-on creative and educational experience.

Secure your spot today to engage in captivating science projects that offer a unique perspective on the waterways of New York City and the vibrant wildlife that inhabits them. Participants will also have the opportunity to experiment with filtration designs reminiscent of those utilized by the innovative minds behind the + POOL initiative, emphasizing the significance of clean water. As a special treat, an inventive activity involving upcycled materials will inspire everyone to contribute to the cause of raising climate awareness and fostering positive change.

Free with RSVP

Seaport Museum

The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport District, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Founded in 1967, the Seaport Museum includes an extensive collection of works of art and artifacts, a maritime reference library, galleries, working 19th-century print shop, and a fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of “Where New York Begins.”

+ POOL is driving free and safe access to the waters around New York City for swimming. What began as an idea for a water-filtering floating swimming pool, conceived by a small group of designers, has since launched a movement to reclaim NYC’s waterways. We support the preservation, restoration and conservation of natural bodies of water; promote water stewardship; and provide quality swim instruction and environmental education to prepare New Yorkers for a future where all have access to the water that surrounds them.
