Let New York Botanical Garden's Urban Naturalist Program Train You to Become a Citizen Scientist in NYC

The New York Botanical Garden offers dozens of adult education classes throughout the year, including their great Urban Naturalist Program which teaches you to recognize and identify all types of urban nature. Learn all about it in this short video from the garden.

In this teeming metropolis we call home, nature is all around us whether we pause to carefully observe it or not. Amaranth springs through the cracks in our sidewalks; migrating warblers rest in our parks; horseshoe crabs scuttle onto our beaches to breed. As an NYBG Urban Naturalist, you will have a unique opportunity to explore these diverse habitats while discovering the keys that unlock their many secrets.
