Watch spring come alive this season at the New York Botanical Gardens. As winter fades, there will be plenty to see and do as nature unfolds her beauty.
See Spring in NYC Bloom in the Natural World
Special Exhibits and Events: March and Beyond
This March 4, the new exhibit, What in the World is a Herbarium? will come to the Gardens. Discover how scientists, scholars, and botanists are preserving plant specimens and saving the world’s endangered plant species.
Meanwhile, all throughout March and April, head to the Gardens for Orchid Evenings. The exhibit The Orchid Show: Thailand will be on display amid dancing, music, and cocktails.
Starting in April and lasting until October, see botanical-inspired sculptures on display at the Gardens from artist Dave Chihuly.
Children and Family Activities in NYC
There’s lots of fun for families at the Botanical Gardens.
Science Camp lets kids explore the natural world, see behind-the-scenes at the Gardens, and undertake scientific investigations. For instance, this upcoming April, enroll your K-5 children in Spring into Science, where they can explore and observe blooming buds, busy insects, and nesting animals.
At the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden, kids and families get to learn where their food comes from, tend vegetable beds, and explore cooking with the bounty of the earth. Daily gardening activities are always happening to let you truly get your hands dirty.
Spring in NYC is a wonderful time to get outside and see what Mother Nature is cooking up. When traveling to NYC and visiting the Botanical Gardens, stay with us at Courtyard New York LaGuardia Airport Hotel.
