On March 24th, over 120 volunteers gave their time to help the Gowanus Canal Conservancy to clean up the Salt Lot for the first Clean & Green of 2012.
A generous donation of 100 free trees from the New York Restoration Project and MillionTrees NYC also gave community members the chance to pick up a tree absolutely free of charge. The tree species available included Winter King Southern Hawthorne, Southern Magnolia, Crape Myrtle, and River Birch.
Some of the day’s tasks included:
Thank you to all of our volunteers who came out and helped us beautify the Salt Lot, and thank you to NYRP for the tree donation!
Our next Clean & Green will be on Sunday, April 24, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. We will be holding a wildflower workshop as well as going around the neighborhood to take care of our local street trees and gardens. Tell all of your friends! More details to follow shortly.
