Climate Week NYC at NYBG

September 20–29, 2019

“The sacrifice of nature is irreversible.” – Roberto Burle Marx

With the final weeks of our current exhibition, Brazilian Modern: The Living Art of Roberto Burle Marx, upon us, it is only fitting that we follow in this iconic conservationist’s footsteps with an entire week devoted to activities and programs that support efforts to restore and preserve the natural world.

In conjunction with Climate Week NYC, we are joining together with organizations across the City to showcase and accelerate global climate action. Join us for an inspiring series of events. Together we can effect informed and meaningful change at a time when plants—which are vital to the health of the planet and humankind—are under threat as never before.

Friday, September 20 | Free Admission
All-Garden Pass
 admission will be free on Friday, September 20, the day of the Global Climate Strike, which is scheduled to take place in advance of the United Nations Climate Action Summit on Monday, September 23. Join us for a deeper connection with the natural world in order to take action to preserve it.
