Explore the early fall display at this four-season native-plant garden, NYBG! This 3.5-acre garden is home to nearly 700 species of native trees, shrubs, wildflowers, grasses, and ferns. The serene pool at the center of the garden is fed by recycled stormwater and purified by aquatic plants. Sullivan, a horticulturist with over 20 years of experience, will lead us on a tour of the garden and share his insights into the plants and their importance. NYBG is a Participating Institution in the stewardship of the National Collection of Endangered Plants, responsible for seven species currently maintained in the Native Plant Garden.
