Chase Away the Winter Blues at Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Date & Time

START: 1:00 PM March 4, 2012
END: 2:00 PM March 4, 2012

Description

Science has developed some understanding of what causes the “winter blues”—and more important, what helps keep them at bay. Exposure to daylight, even on a cloudy day, can help restore energy, alertness, and contentment.

Over a dozen different kinds of flowers grace the grounds of BBG in late winter. Celebrate the transition from winter to spring by admiring petite, colorful, and sturdy blooms that are undeterred by the frosts and snows of March.

Join licensed psychotherapist and veteran BBG tour guide Lynne Spevack, LCSW, for this hour-long, outdoor narrated walk designed to relieve the winter doldrums. Learn what you can do to maintain a sunny outlook through the dark, cold days of winter while discovering the plants and animals that enliven the garden landscape in the depths of winter. This walk is held rain, snow, or shine; dress warmly and wear comfortable walking shoes.

Free with Garden admission; no reservation required. Meet in front of the Visitor Center.
