New York City EcoFlora: EcoQuest Challenges
Ongoing, new challenges every month
EcoQuests, part of the NYC EcoFlora Project, challenge New Yorkers to become citizen scientists and observe, study and help conserve the native plants and animals of the City, using iNaturalist, an easy-to-use mobile App.
Each month, NYBG EcoFlora announces a new Challenge where we need your help to document the flora and fauna of New York City by taking and sharing photos via iNaturalist, an easy-to-use mobile App.
The Garden’s Adult Education Program offers more than 30 courses in plant science. In addition, the Botany Certificate Program allows students to select one of three areas of concentration: Field Botany, Plant Systematics, or Ethnobotany.
