Volunteer with the Stewardship Team to plant trees in Marine Park!

Trees provide so many benefits to New Yorkers such as improved air and water quality, reduced pollution, and lower energy costs.

Volunteers will be trained in proper planting techniques. Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, long pants, and clothing that can get dirty. Please bring your own water bottle.

Please note: Space is limited and registration is required for this event. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.
