Gallery Talks and Curator-Led Tours are a great way to learn behind-the-scenes details about the Garden from curators, managers, and scientists. To ensure all Members get a chance to participate, Members are permitted to attend one tour per month. Curator-led tours will be announced a month prior of tour date. Reservations are required.
November 9; 9:30–10:30 a.m.
The chrysanthemum—kiku in Japanese—is the most celebrated of all Japanese fall-flowering plants. Marc Hachadourian, Director of the Nolen Greenhouses, leads this tour of NYBG’s exciting collection. Learn about the labor-intensive training that goes into growing these majestic fall flowers. Space is limited on this tour, so please reserve in advance.
Members Clean Up Day
November 10; 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Volunteer to help beautify and clean up the Thain Family Forest. Your efforts will mitigate human-caused disturbances by maintaining accessible trails for Garden visitors; removing harmful invasive plant species; planting native species in managed areas; or picking up litter from the Forest and Bronx River. Please wear sun protection, as well as appropriate and comfortable gardening clothes, and bring a refillable water bottle.
