Botanical Garden Honored with National Service Award

The New York Botanical Garden has been named the winner of a prestigious award for community service from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, one of only 10 groups across the country to receive the honor this year.

An ceremony will be held in Washington, D.C. to recognize the winners of the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, which includes a $10,000 award. The Botanical Garden was selected for its work in horticulture research and botanical conservation, as well as its community service projects, like "Bronx Green-Up," a gardening outreach program that helped turn vacant lots in the borough into community gardens and urban farms.

“The NYBG is a treasured resource in the Bronx, and the acknowledgment of their exemplary service is long overdue," said Congressman Jose Serrano.
