"Happy little throw back to my summer adventure at @nybg with the #nybgadulted #floraldesignintensive. What a magical three weeks with a really fab collection of humans. #💐 #✨" The feelings are mutual @rachelmichellejones—having you here was a joy! #regram

Our sincere thanks to the incredible and diligent folks at @blueapron for coming out to the Garden for #EarthDayNYBG to help us clear invasive species from around grounds. It’s hard work, and they were more than up to the task.

Hope you're out enjoying this beautiful NYC weather as we kick off #EarthDayNYBG celebration weekend at the Garden. Come hang out with the Earth Ball!

With our #EarthDayNYBG Celebration Weekend kicking off tomorrow, we thought it would be good to share a little peek into what our scientists are doing not just here in NYC, but around the globe. Here, Fabian Michelangeli and his South American colleagues venture into the cloud forests of Peru in search of plants that help us better understand the state of global biodiversity. Want to see more of our travels? Let us know in the comments! (📸 by @mco_photo)

For #EarthDayNYBG this weekend, we're opening up the Herbarium to show you rare, endangered, and historic specimens gathered over the centuries, like Penstemon payettensis and Arctomecon humilis here.

This weekend’s #EarthDayNYBG isn't just for grown-ups. If you've got little ones in tow, we'll have all kinds of discovery going on in the Everett Children's Adventure Garden as spring sets in—'cause plant science is for everyone.

Nature is a talented artist, even on the smallest scale. These are #microscope images displaying cells of the plume poppy, otherwise known as Bocconia frutescens. We'll be holding lab tours for #EarthDayNYBG this weekend, so come explore studies like this for yourself!

NYBG’s Spring Break Campers spend time in the vegetable beds, planting and picking their own thriving vegetable harvest.
