Natural Areas Volunteers (NAV) supports the restoration and protection of natural areas through volunteerism and training. Volunteers help to make sure the reforestation trees planted during MillionTreesNYC events continue to thrive and grow into healthy new forests.
And don’t forget that planting is only the first step in keeping our urban forests healthy and strong. For information about participating in tree care for reforested areas or street trees, visit our Stew Corps or community calendar pages.
We’ve received some great photos and feedback from people who participated in past events!
"Once again we had a wonderful time at MillionTreeNYC thanks to the great job you do in coordination. This year I took a team of 24 students and 4 adults from IS 51 Staten Island /Art_In-Action SASF. We had a wonderful and productive day. My group received many nice comments from the park staff. Look forward to do this again next year." - Laura, Staten Island
