MillionTreesNYC Volunteer Planting Day
Presented by the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee and the NFL
Saturday, October 19th 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Rockaway Community Park, Far Rockaway, Queens
Every spring and fall, thousands of enthusiastic and environmentally–minded New Yorkers volunteer with MillionTreesNYC to plant young trees in public parks. This October, for the first time ever MillionTreesNYC will be planting all 20,000 trees in one day in one park! Join us at Rockaway Community Park, Queens to make New York City greener and greater, and to build a more resilient and vibrant coastline.
Rockaway Community Park
For two years, the Parks Department removed invasive plants to prepare Rockaway Community Park for this day. Then, last October, Superstorm Sandy hit this 253-acre park full force. We now need your help to plant a native coastal forest to restore this community park. Read more
Please register as an INDIVIDUAL or GROUP LEADER (if you are planning on inviting a group).
This is a great event for students and families to do together. MillionTreesNYC will supply all tools and refreshments. We will also issue community service letters for students fulfilling service requirements.
Please note that children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Groups of children must be accompanied by adults, maintaining a 1:5 ratio of adults to children (for example, two adults must lead a group of ten children).
