The New York Botanical Garden:
Creating a Living Museum
June 21, 2018 | Episode #23
THE BRONX, NEW YORK -- In Episode #23 of his podcast, Thomas Fraser talks with Dr. Brian Boom, Vice President for Conservation Strategy of the New York Botanical Garden, about the history of the garden, conservation, creating a living museum and the value of long-term strategic plans.
While many organizations are managed with a particular focus on the next calendar quarter’s results, the time frame for planning at the New York Botanical Garden is a bit different. “The next quarter for us really means the next quarter century,” Boom says. “Long-term planning is the key to our success.”
