NYC       wildflowers

NYC Wildflower Week is here - May 3-12, 2024.  Learn why wildflowers are vital to our urban lives. All are welcome!

Why Wildflowers?

Native plants are an important part of nature, especially in the Big Apple. Indigenous species - including trees, ferns, shrubs and sedges - play a critical role in our local ecology, are habitat for wildlife, and boost our well-being.

NYC has already lost nearly 40% of our native flora. Here's how you can help
