Escape With Fall Forest Weekends at NYBG

Thain Family Forest Bronx RiverThose who have been following our Fall Foliage Tracker know that peak color is just around the corner here at the Garden. While the rest of New York State’s leaf season has come and gone for the most part, the fun is just getting started here in the Native Plant Garden and the Thain Family Forest with the return of our popular Fall Forest Weekends this week and next.

Enjoy New York City’s largest remaining tract of old-growth forest at its most colorful alongside a variety of entertaining and educational activities to heighten your experience of this vital ecosystem. There will be plenty of color to appreciate during Forest tours and various live demonstrations. See live birds of prey, professional arborists demonstrating how they climb to the top of the tree canopy, and woodworking demonstrated by a skilled craftsman. You can even paddle a canoe down the Bronx River to take in rich scenery from the best vantage point there is!

Bring your family to a place that showcases the singular beauty of New York State while feeling a world away from the rest of the city. You can participate in NYBG’s Citizen Science program as you explore the trails, and your kids can improve their own natural knowledge in Tree-rific Trees in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden. Check out the full schedule of programs for both Fall Forest Weekends, taking place November 1 2 and 8 9. Until then, enjoy these photos of what visitors can expect to see during fall at the Garden!
