Brooklyn Botanic Garden

We know how much you have been missing the Garden! So we are bringing the BBG to you this weekend with a virtual nature walk through the blooming Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden. 🌸🌸🌸

Tune in Sunday, April 12 at 3 p.m. EDT on Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Facebook as we stream the virtual walk on Facebook Live.

Watch as the historic Japanese garden’s weeping Higan cherries sway in the wind along the pond, and follow the path of camellias, artfully pruned pine trees, and fiddlehead ferns. Look and listen for wildlife following the natural rhythms of spring in the garden.

The Garden remains temporarily closed, but we invite you to experience one of NYC’s most spectacular spring experiences with this virtual visit.

Watch the video tour here: https://www.facebook.com/BrooklynBotanic/videos/224698758775477/
