NYBG is partnering with leading museums, universities, and environmental organizations around the world to engage the public in citizen science! During WeDigBio! 2021 (April 8–9), we invite your help to mobilize biodiversity data from preserved herbarium specimens to advance scientific understanding of the plants of our world! Join us for a series of virtual events—including research talks by contemporary botanists and a tour of NYBG’s remarkable scientific collection—and learn how to participate in online projects that support our mission to preserve and protect the planet’s biodiversity.

Citizen Science: Epiphytes

Join our latest expeditions to help transcribe specimens of epiphytic, tree-dwelling plants and contribute to continued research and conservation of these quintessential plants of the tropics.
