The New York Botanical Garden has been engaged in its next in-depth strategic planning process designed to chart the course of action for its future. The current financial health and programmatic vibrancy of NYBG is based, in part, on the deployment of three earlier institution-wide, broad-based plans designed and implemented over the past 20 years. The current plan aims to put in place specific goals to assure institutional strength well beyond 2016, its 125th year.
