Event description

Description

Join our elected officials, Community Board 7, NYC Parks Department, Sanitation Department, local businesses and non-profits, students and parents, environmental organizations, and community groups as we gather for our annual Spring cleanup and beautification day on the UWS.

First come, first serve to recieve a free tree care goodie bag with gardening supplies, curb your dog sign, and other gifts. Mulch, compost, flowers and pails will be provided too!

Watch a tree stewardship demonstration and then "adopt" a tree/s on your block or in the neighborhood for tree care and sidewalk cleanup.

Learn how important urban trees are to our health, environment and economy, and how properly cared for permeable soil slows down stormwater runoff into our waterways preventing combined sewage overflows.

Learn about the issue of our declining pollinator population (eg, monarch butterflies and bees) and what we can do to reverse that alarming environmental trend.

Have fun meeting other volunteers who love NYC trees and want to help improve our neighborhood!
