Garden staff and collaborating researchers will be presenting a session at this week’s Northeast Natural History Conference in Albany: “Natural History of The New York Botanical Garden: Interpreting an Urban Old Growth Forest”.

Check out this great video of a Red-Tailed Hawk taking a bath. The video is by friend of the Garden, Naturecam HD. We’re amazed by how unfazed the hawk is by everything going on around him.
After some extensive renovations, the Spicebush Trail has reopened in the Garden’s Native Forest. If you’ve never taken a wander through the Forest, you really should! It’s lovely. The Forest is, at 50-acres, the largest remaining tract of the primeval woods that once covered New York City. Here’s a little story we did focusing on the Forest in fall, but it should pique your interest for a beautiful, post-Train Show winter wander down this newly renovated trail.
