Field Trip – New York Botanical Gardens: “Wonderland Curious Nature”

Be part of a one-of-a-kind experience. It’s unbelievable. It’s unfamiliar. It’s the New York Botanical Gardens (NYBG) like never before! Head down the rabbit hole as “Wonderland Curious Nature” transforms 250 acres through the classic story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

An exhibition specialist will guide our group on a two-hour private tour through mind-bending horticultural displays, unusual and outsized art installations plus all the wonderfully weird beauty of Alice’s world of imagination, made real with thousands of technicolor flowers.

After our magical, memorable experience across the grounds and through the buildings at NYBG, our sensory adventure will continue with culinary enchantment at the Hudson Garden Grill. We’ll immerse ourselves in a three-course luncheon from the restaurant’s creatively curated Spring/Summer menu.
