The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) is a botanical garden and National Historic Landmark which is located in the Bronx, New York City. The Botanical Garden covers 250-acres of land. It supports over one million living plants in big collections
Yearly, over one million visitors visit the garden’s amazing and interesting diversity of tropical, temperate, and desert flora, as well as programming that ranges from exhibition in the Haupt Conservatory to festivals on Daffodil Hill.
The Botanical Garden is also a great education institution with more than 300,000 people annually – among them Bronx families, teachers, and school children – learn about plant science, ecology, and healthful eating through New York’s Botanical Garden’s hands-on, curriculum based programming. Approximately 90,000 of those 300,000 visitors are children from underserved close-by communities, while more than 3,000 are teachers from New York City’s public school system participating in professional development programs which train them to teach science courses at all grade levels, from children to adults.
