    Welcome to a new school year. Here at The New York Botanical Garden, our dedicated staff continues to be hard at work developing and delivering programs that bring the world of plants to you and your students in innovative and engaging ways.

    This year, in response to your feedback, we have made some exciting changes, including new programs and curricula. We have also reformatted some of our existing programs to provide a better instructor-to-student ratio and to enhance our workshops.

    There are new opportunities for you to work with the Botanical Garden to create individualized plant-science programs. Our staff will collaborate with you to build a hands-on workshop that is customized to meet your class needs. In the Professional Development Program for Teachers, we are offering a new series of workshops focusing on Earth Science and Evolution concepts. These will take place on Saturdays in May.

    Finally, look for our new middle school curriculum, FBI (Forensic Botany Investigations), and high school curriculum, Ethnobotany Explorers, available from our publishing partners at Glencoe.

    Remember, there’s no better place than The New York Botanical Garden to learn about plants and their importance to all life on Earth. Please join us for an exciting year full of fun and relevant plant-science learning. We look forward to seeing you at the Garden!
