Tomatoes growing at the Edible Academy

Class Trips

The New York Botanical Garden becomes a 250-acre classroom for you and your students to explore. Active learning takes place in three unique sites and across Garden grounds. Students become gardeners in the Ruth Rea Howell Vegetable Garden at the Edible Academy; they become naturalists investigating plant and animal life in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden; and at the GreenSchool in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, students become world explorers examining the glass-enclosed rain forests and deserts. NYBG’s Class Trips offer something for every age group.

All of NYBG’s programs complement classroom learning and support learning standards prescribed by New York City and New York State, and also align with the national Next Generation Science Standards.

We are an outdoor learning environment, and programs run rain or shine. Be sure to dress for the weather, and read answers to some of our frequently asked questions on our pre-visit page.
