reTREEt in NYC! Come help us restore The Rockaways.
Working in tandem with Local Office Landscape & Urban Design and Bartlett Tree Experts, reTREEters are going to plant trees and shrubs in Belle Harbor and Rockaway Beach, neighborhoods in Queens that were heavily flooded during Hurricane Sandy. Some of the planting material has been on display at MoMA PS1 as part of The Colony in EXPO 1: New York during the summer. If you are able, stop by the museum before the exhibit ends on September 2nd.
