Life Under a Log: Arvolyn Hill explores at the New York Botanical Garden

What lives under a log? What’s a habitat? In this 3.5 minute video from the New York Botanical Garden, Arvolyn Hill explores the habitat that formed under a log in this 250-acre garden in the Bronx.

Hill, the Family Programs Coordinator for the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden at NYBG, uses the phrases “I notice, I wonder, It reminds me of…” to help prompt discussions that can happen offline, both during or after the video. The exercise can also be used to explore the unique habitats forming under logs or rocks in the green spaces where you live.
