Step into your role as a naturalist by creating a backyard herbarium and DIY flower press with everyday materials. Take a walk with exhibiting artist Duy Hoàng through the woodlands to Wave Hill's compost pile to collect fallen flowers and leaves, paying special attention to your surrounding environment. Then, head back to the studio to create work that infuses your unique observations and thoughts to reimagine what a scientific document can be. Free with admission to the grounds.

Venue: Wave Hill Public Gardens
