Urban Park Rangers are role models who encourage children to let their imaginations run wild in a safe, supportive atmosphere.

Whether enjoying a family friendly beach exploration, freeing your imagination playing in nature, or learning about conservation through eco-crafts, a free Ranger program is the perfect addition to your family’s weekend.

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.

For two years, NYC Parks 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.
