Inside The New York Botanical Garden

Forest Dedication Opens with Sun and Color

NYBG Forest DedicationFall’s chill may be creeping in, but the brilliant sun catching the leaves of the Forest makes for a fantastic celebration here at The New York Botanical Garden. Luckily, Garden Tour Guide Suzanne Goldstein was there in the crowd this past weekend to snap photos of the ongoing event in action, from canoe trips to forest tours.

The festivities take off again this Saturday and Sunday with live music, demonstrations, and activities for everyone to jump into. Want to glide along New York City’s only freshwater river with an expert canoe guide? The Bronx River Alliance has you covered. And once you’re back on shore, you’re welcome to join in on one of our trail tours, or sit back and enjoy the pluck and bow of The Manhattan Valley Ramblers’ talented musical arrangements.

Our lauded poetry readings also return for the second weekend of the celebration alongside our brand new, behind-the-scenes science campus tours. There’s just so much to do, hear, and see.

And I’m not kidding. Here’s just a glimpse at what went on November 5th, the festival’s opening day:
