NYBG Orchid Show’s Virtual Tour

By DIANE S. WILLIAMS 

While most of the city is shuttered because of COVID-19, DC 37 members in Quasi Public Employees Local 374 are hard at work behind the scenes  maintaining cultural jewels like the New York Botanical Gardens. They are the maintainers, the guards, the gardeners, and other workers responsible for keeping exhibits like the annual Orchid Show alive during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Virtual visitors can view the relaxing tour’s extravaganza of colorful and exotic florals and verdant tropical greenery.

And seeing some of nature’s beauty may ease the stress of staying indoors during the COVID-19 crisis.

Watch with your kiddos and see how many types of orchids you can name and describe.

DC 37 keeps New York City running. We will get through this together.
