Wave Hill Events March 18-March 25

Let’s give Spring an enthusiastic, official welcome this week. Show your admiration for her on a romp across the lawns and a mini-hike through the woodlands. Admire her accoutrements at the Family Art Project, or at a workshop with Winter Workspace artists who work with plants and other natural materials. Above all, let the light, the air, the tremendous life-force of the new season, inspire and lift your family’s winter-worn spirits..
