Self-Guided Tour: Two Landscapes, One Park

Take students on a journey through two different landscapes on the High Line: woodlands and grasslands. Through comparing these two systems, students learn three core concepts:

  1. Climate and conditions shape the development of landscapes, along with the choices of landscape architects.
  2. Plants adapt to the conditions of their environment. This leads to biodiversity.
  3. Ecosystems are a combination of climate, conditions, and biodiversity. To identify an ecosystem, you must look both at the adaptations of plants individually, and at the climate and conditions of the system.

Educational Partnerships

Through partnerships with New York City schools, the High Line connects local students with nature and learning resources directly in the park. Our interdisciplinary, place-based approach encourages children to explore and think critically about science, history, art, and more.

'' [My students] have a better appreciation of where they live, who was here before, and hopefully why they need to take care of our community for the future.'
