Becton’s Horticulture Club visited the New York Botanical Garden, which is located in the Bronx this past Wednesday.

“The tour guide gave us some really interesting information when we were on the trip. He mostly talked about the usefulness of herbs and their healthful benefits,” said Horticulture Club Adviser and Science Teacher Mr. D’Alia.

Senior Allec Nico Santiago stated, “I actually really enjoyed the trip more than I thought I would. It was pretty cool learning about all the different herbs.”

“It was really interesting to learn about something that we see every day and give no mind to,” added Senior Carolina Saavedra.

The New York Botanical Garden is an iconic living museum, a major educational institution, and also acts as a renowned plant research and conservation organization. Founded in 1891 and now a National Historic Landmark, it is deemed to be one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world and the largest in any city in the United States. It is distinguished by the beauty of its diverse landscape and extensive collections and gardens, as well as by the scope and the variation and popularity of its programs.

In the course of a century-long effort, the institution has amassed over 7,800,000 plant specimens in the research herbarium, now among the four largest in the world. It has built the world’s most important research library about plant science and horticulture and taught millions of visitors to love and respect the world’s flora.

“I’ll probably take them here again. I really enjoyed it, and I think the kids did too,” Mr. D’Alia said. He then added, “I think I’ll bring my own kids too one day. I don’t see why not. They may like it.”
