This Earth Day, we’re highlighting the work of photographer and author Andrew Garn, who will discuss his book Wildflowers of New York City, for which he adventured from the swamps of Staten Island to the dense forests of Central Park to document the flowering wildlife across the five boroughs.

NYBG’s Curator of the Native Plant Garden and the Rock Garden, Michael Hagen, will join Garn for a conversation about the importance of wildflowers in our urban habitat, and how to appreciate the marvels of nature that we might have otherwise passed by. After the lecture, stick around for our annual Earth Day Celebration.

This lecture is free to you—RSVP to save your seat, there is limited space available!
