Thursday, May 12th: Native Flora of NYC

Native Flora of NYC
The Arsenal in Central Park (64th St. & 5th Ave., 3rd Fl., Manhattan)
6:30-7:45pm
Free

Discover the City’s 25,000 green acres—filled with majestic trees, wildflowers, grasses and ferns— the wild, unplanted thread in the Big Apple’s ecological fabric. Learn what makes a plant native and why local flora is important. Explore how life in the five boroughs means it’s not easy being green, characteristics of urban forests and threats to indigenous flora. We’ll also discuss what you can do, including how to go native in the garden.

This event is part of NYC Wildflower Week.
