Programs in both the arts and sciences are designed to foster public understanding of and appreciation for this complementary relationship.

Wave Hill maintains award-winning gardens and greenhouses; manages an urban woodland; provides environmental education for City children, teachers, and over 110,000 visitors annually; offers arts activities for children that strengthen environmental awareness; and presents exhibitions, concerts, lectures and workshops that examine the aesthetic response to nature.
