WWII:

How Kids Helped

Children love history too! Gateway National Recreation Area invites kids to join a Park Ranger on a journey back in time to War World II when children contributed to the success of the war.

On Wednesday, July 17th, from 1 to 2 p.m., the National Park Service will present “Nim and the War Effort” at the Ryan Visitor Center at Floyd Bennett Field, just over the Marine Parkway Bridge in Brooklyn.

Recycling is not a new idea. During World War II, children on the home front helped the war effort by salvaging scrap. This is illustrated during a fun afternoon where kids can listen to a story about a young girl helping the war effort and participate in activities to learn about World War II.

This is a program for children of all ages. Reservations are not required.

Floyd Bennett Field can be reached by the Q35 bus.
