Brooklyn, NY – Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) invites visitors to attend Jazz in July, a special concert series celebrating BBG’s summer exhibition Natural Attractions: A Plant-Pollinator Love Story. Jazz in July takes place every Thursday in July, beginning July 11, and includes live jazz performances from local musicians, art tours and interactive workshops, and a pop-up bar serving beer, wine, ice cream, and snacks. Activities will kick off at 6 p.m. with performances starting at 7 p.m. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable fusion of music and nature! Jazz in July is free with Garden admission, which can be purchased at bbg.org.

Jazz in July is a part of Natural Attractions: A Plant-Pollinator Love Story, an exhibition and program series through October that aims to inspire a new way of seeing and appreciating the necessity of plants – and insects – to encourage visitors to actively help protect pollination through thoughtful gardening strategies and plant choices. Through exhibits and public programs, Natural Attractions offers a call to action to New Yorkers to protect pollinators, whose survival is inextricably linked to reversing climate change and making the planet a safer, and more beautiful place for us to live.
