Fall Forest Weekends

November 2 & 3 and 9 & 10, 2019

11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Immerse yourself in autumnal splendor

Revel in the unique beauty and resilience of the largest expanse of New York’s original wooded landscape as the Thain Family Forest’s seasonal transformation takes hold. Explore this historic old-growth forest’s 50 acres, discovering its ecological importance with tours, citizen science activities, and more. As you explore, listen for the sounds of NYBG Composer-in-Residence Angélica Negrón’s Chorus of the Forest, an original series of interactive choral experiences and rich, layered soundscapes that give a voice to the trees around you. It all makes for an unforgettable fall experience that you don’t want to miss.
