Queens Botanical Garden - Where people, plants, and cultures meet
Cleansing Biotope

An area planted with selected native wetland species that filter rainwater collected from roofs and other surfaces. The water is pumped to the entry plaza fountain. From there it continues to flow through channels back to the Visitor & Administration Center, where the cleansing cycle begins again.
