Join GreenThumb on a field trip for a tour of the Greenbelt Native Plant Center - NYC Parks' 13-acre greenhouse, nursery, and seed bank complex on Staten Island. Participants will learn how the center provides native plants and seeds from local plant populations in support of the restoration and management of many of the City's most valuable natural areas. We will hear from the center staff, which have extensive knowledge of the local ecosystems of the region. Their seed collectors alone log thousands of hours each year in the field.
