Natural History Talks & Tours: Outdoor & Virtual

We look forward to resuming these monthly tours as COVID restrictions allow. In the meantime, enjoy our virtual tours!

Walking Tours:  Heather Garden & Alpine Garden

The first Sunday of each month, members of the park’s horticulture staff guide visitors through the landmarked gardens. Join a New York City Parks Department horticulturalist to learn about the park’s history, its horticultural revitalization, and its more than 550 varieties of plants, trees, and shrubs.

Nature Walks:  Botanical History, Tree & Bird Walks

Expert naturalists lead monthly programs on birds of prey, invasive species, natural history, and botany in Fort Tryon Park and our sister parks uptown throughout the four seasons.
