Spring Volunteer Stewardship Day

With over 900,000 trees planted to date, we are well on our way to meeting the goal of planting one million trees almost two years ahead of schedule. But planting is just the first step in enhancing and preserving New York City's urban forest. Tree care and stewardship are the next critical steps to ensuring the survival of our urban forest. Join us on Saturday, April 25 to help care for young trees in natural areas of the following parks:

  • Van Cortlandt Park, BRONX
  • Inwood Hill Park, MANHATTAN
  • Clove Lakes Park, STATEN ISLAND
  • Conference House Park, STATEN ISLAND
  • Wolfe's Pond Park, STATEN ISLAND
