New York Botanical Garden
The New York Botanical Garden was founded in 1981 and is now one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world and the largest in the United States. This 250-acre botanical garden landscape is an iconic home to over one million living plants in different collections, earning its title as a National Historic Landmark.
NYBG is not only a botanical garden; it is a major educational institution and a well-known plant research and conservation organization. It upholds its mission to conduct research on the plants—with the goal to protect, sustain, and preserve them—to maintain and improve the beauty of the garden, and most especially, to be a venue to teach students, teachers, and the public about biology, horticulture, ecology, and generally other programs of the world’s nature.
This 250-acre garden is located in Bronx Park, NYC. About 12,000 species of plant collection from almost all parts of the world can be found here. Throughout the year, most of these are displayed in a conservatory. One should also not miss out the outdoor exhibits in this botanical garden that has a 40-arcre woodland, a rock as well as native plant gardens, and collections of conifers, lilacs, and magnolias. Through Columbia University professor Nathaniel Lord Britton back in the late eightees, the garden was founded in 1891 and was opened in 1900. Botanical explorations are still ongoing up to this day.
