Adopt a Plant

Adopt a High Line plant for yourself or as a gift! You or a recipient of your choice will receive a certificate of adoption via email, along with the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping the High Line thrive.


The entirety of your contribution to this effort will help us continue to care for our 100,000+ plants on the High Line. While we are unable to personally assign or label plants, you or your honoree will know that your contribution played an important role in providing safe access to an open park in a time when we need it the most. We hope you’ll choose to independently claim a plant for yourself on your next visit and share a photo with friends and family in recognition of your gift.
