SATURDAY: Sketch the Other Garden


I've never thought of it until now, but we have a Big Three in NYC, . . . in Botanical terms.  We have three absolutely wonderful gardens, one in Brooklyn, which we visited last week, one in Queens, where we're having our summer picnic, and of course the really big one in the Bronx - the New York City Botanical Garden.

Everything has its season and after a bleak winter, this is the time to be out in nature recording its beauty.  The garden is large, but to keep things simple our base of operations will be at the entrance to the  Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. That's the big greenhouse. It's the largest Victorian-style glasshouse in the United States.  We'll meet there for lunch and we'll meet there again for our Show and Tell.  


What:   We’ll be sketching at New York Botanical Garden

Where:   The Garden is located at 2900 Southern Blvd.  We will meet at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory - Greenhouse

When:  The Garden opens at 10:00 AM on Saturday, April 27, 2024.  


  • Adults: $35
