American ImpressionismAfter months of preparation and a frenetic few weeks in the Haupt Conservatory, where our horticulturists were buzzing about with hollyhocks, poppies, and foxgloves, opening weekend for Impressionism: American Gardens on Canvas has finally arrived. And with the mid-spring flux of wildly blooming flowers and greening trees surrounding us, it’s a pretty good time to get reacquainted with NYBG!

Join us Saturday and Sunday for the Opening Weekend Celebration, featuring live music, plein-air painting, craft activities, dance, and a special cake tasting by some of New York’s top bakeries. It’s going to be an incredible run, and the show is only just getting started.

There’s still time to grab tickets to this weekend’s Orchid Evening, starting at 6:30 this Saturday, March 19. And if you upgrade your ticket or join the Young Garden Circle, you’ll receive access to the YGC Lounge in the Aquatic House; live DJ, open bar, snacks—you get the idea. We’ll see you in the Conservatory!

Darwin’s orchid is one of the most reputable flowers you’ll find in the Haupt Conservatory during The Orchid Show, if only for its incredible importance to its namesake’s evolutionary predictions.

The Aquatic House in the Haupt Conservatory is an escape year round, but in winter it takes on the vibe of an oasis. Look for some of the medicinal plants featured in our Wild Medicine exhibition while you’re relaxing to the white noise of falling water.

Holiday Train Show

Waves of students pool together inside the queues of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory as they eagerly wait to explore its many biomes and exhibitions. A cluster at the front of the line indicates the children are balancing precariously on tip-toes to glance at the imposing structure placed near the entrance of the building. While some eyes light with recognition of the word “Macy’s” labeled on the brown, box-like creation, others are entranced by the toy train which circles it in an infinite loop. This grand replica of Manhattan’s famous department store, festively decorated with sprouting horns of white branches and red yuletide ornaments, stands as the captivating introduction to The New York Botanical Garden’s annual Holiday Train Show.

As GreenSchool’s intern for the 2015–2016 academic year, I am able to interact with these students and discuss what they observed as they participate in the GreenSchool’s plant science workshop, “Building with Botany.” Just like the Holiday Train Show which was restructured and expanded this year, so was its complementary workshop. “Building with Botany” is now a fully involved STEAM program; like its acronym, it seamlessly integrates science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.
