Schools & Teachers

At The New York Botanical Garden, we grow more than just plants—we grow programs, creativity, and people too. Through inquiry-based investigations of the natural world, children and teachers construct understandings of plants, their cultural uses, and overall importance to life on Earth.

Participants in Children’s Education programs:

  • Explore real-world phenomena
  • Think like scientists
  • Learn through discussions
  • Engage in environments that connect to lived experiences, cultural identities and sense of well being
