Since it was built in 1896, the 250-acre New York Botanical Garden has served as an advocate for nature through its role as a museum of living plants; through comprehensive education programs; and through research programs of the International Plant Science Center. As one of the largest botanical gardens in the world NYBG is home to 50 curated display gardens and over 50-acres of native forest. The Garden also hosts the Bronx Green-Up, part of the New York City Compost project, and provides compost outreach and education to local residents and businesses. The New York Botanical Garden was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1967. For more information about their programs, events, and exhibitions, please be sure to visit their website!
