“Explore the Garden” Virtual Group Tour
Taking a virtual tour of our beautiful botanical Garden is a great way to foster teamwork, support environmental education for socially distanced students, and discover a hidden jewel in New York City.
45 Mins | Online | Groups up to 20
What You’ll Do
Join our talented environmental educators in discovering our beautiful botanical Garden, learning about the impacts of pandemics on the environment, and meeting chickens (yes, chickens!) from the comfort of your own home.
In this 45-minute live tour, an educator will take your team through the specialty areas of the Garden. You’ll be able to interact with a variety of plants in the Garden’s collection, ask questions, and watch the educator give a treat to our resident chickens. While you tour, you’ll hear stories and information on how the Garden is important to the local community, especially during the coronavirus crisis, and is also vital for providing healthy habitats for pollinators (bees & butterflies).
Join in on the fun and snack on your own favorite treat while learning more about the beauty of natural habitats and environments!
