A mysterious botanical home with a mysterious past is on its way to New York City, where it will be home to some of the world’s most endangered plants and animals.
The Botanical Garden of Nyc will be located at the top of a hill on Westchester Street near the intersection of West and South Avenues in Manhattan, said Mary Kopp, spokeswoman for the Botanical Gardens, a nonprofit organization.
The gardens will be part of a project to conserve the wild, and protect biodiversity and habitat for plants and wildlife.
Kopp said the Botanic Gardens are working with the state Department of Environmental Conservation, the New York Department of Parks and Recreation and other state agencies to preserve the property.
The Botanical House is an internationally recognized botanical institution and a national treasure.
The Garden’s mission statement states that it is a place where the “tendrils of the garden extend to every corner of the globe,” and “the beauty and wonder of nature can be felt in every part of the Garden.”
The Garden has been home to more than 1,500 species of plants and birds since it opened in the late 1800s.
It’s a member of the National Park Service, a part of New York State.
The site was once home to a dairy farm, a cattle ranch and a mill.
The garden is about 5 miles (8 kilometers) northwest of the Bronx and includes a garden of more than 30 species of wildflowers, flowers, shrubs, trees, fruit and berries, said Kopp.
A variety of species of exotic plants and plants that grow on the botanical grounds are also on display.
The Garden is part of The New York Botanical Society’s mission to conserve biodiversity, preserve wildflower habitat, provide education, support research and support the natural sciences.
