The Magical World of Plants: Central Park Walk

For millennia, people have collected and cultivated plants to reap their benefits for healing and wellness. Plants and fungi were often coveted for their supposed magical properties and ability to alter the human consciousness. Join us for a botanical journey and learn about the wondrous plants hiding in plain sight, from their dynamic relationships with their ecosystems to their varied uses throughout human history. Presented in conjunction with New-York Historical’s exhibition Harry Potter: A History of Magic.
