Help Support Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Every contribution helps ensure the strength and vitality of the Garden, and our ability to effectively serve the community in myriad ways. Thank you for your generosity!
What Does Your Gift Support?
Situated on 52 acres in the heart of Brooklyn, the Garden is home to over 12,000 different plant species and cultivars, including 500+ rare or endangered species. In addition, our horticulturists curate 14 specialty gardens and 5 climate-controlled plant ecosystems.
The Garden’s talented Horticulture team brings the seasons to life with dynamic displays and year-round care of the plant collections. BBG’s work is a model for leading-edge sustainability in horticulture and operations and demonstrates innovative, green practices to inspire individuals, organizations, and cities to adopt best practices for the future.
Each year, more than 130,000 people participate in BBG’s environmental and STEM education programs (offered free or at low cost) that help adults and children of all abilities develop a relationship with nature. The Education team has pivoted to developing and delivering both in-person and remote programming for the schools, students, teachers, and communities who depend on the Garden’s essential education and information services.
From the friendly faces of Visitor Services, to programmatic staff in Education, Community Greening, and Public Programs, to our teams in Horticulture, Facilities, and Security, and so many more—BBG staff are hard at work to bring the beauty, knowledge, and inspiration of the Garden to you at home and safely on-site.
