The New York Botanical Garden  A museum of plants, an educational institution, and a scientific research organization in the Bronx.

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.

This forsythia is a Bronx native! A dwarf cultivar of Forsythia viridissima, it was named 'Bronxensis' by NYBG's own T.H. Everett. Come see the bloom of our borough’s beauty during our #EarthDayNYBG Celebration this weekend.

The daffs are gathering! And we're only a couple weeks out from our Daffodil Celebration & Wine Weekend. Should be a colorful good time.

After weeks of false starts and never-ending nor’easters, spring has finally come to the Garden! To mark the occasion, Todd Forrest, our Arthur Ross VP for Horticulture and Living Collections, has a special message for you:⠀
“‘Spring will be a little late this year’—so sang American jazz singer Sarah Vaughan. It’s a sentiment shared by NYBG gardeners and anyone else longing for the overdue vernal display of flowers, but all hope is not lost. With the threat of the last frost now likely behind us, our favorite flowering trees are poised to branch out into the warming spring air. We are buoyed by the sight of the first cherry and magnolia blossoms, which have just started to open. Early spring bulbs such as squill and glory-of-the snow are in peak bloom right now in the Rock Garden and Perennial Garden. They will soon be followed by waves of bright, cheery daffodils, which are emerging throughout the Garden.”
