If you didn’t have a chance to check out the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden before self quarantine, you’ll still have a chance to admire the beauty virtually! NYBG has launched NYBG at Home- a page where folks can enjoy virtual events such as the upcoming Facebook Watch Party video tour of The Orchid Show: Jeff Leatham’s Kaleidoscope on Wednesday, March 25, at 12 p.m. EDT.
The site also provides convenient, one-click links to NYBG’s blogs; the digital collection of NYBG’s LuEsther T. Mertz Library; teacher resources; plant-based, kid-friendly recipes; ways to get involved in virtual research projects; and much more. We hope it will be a reminder of how the natural world can bring us joy. Check out NYBG at Home at www.nybg.org/nybg-at-home.
