Greening Western Queens update July 12

Lots of new groups braved the hot hot heat in the last few weeks. See the map for the “toeholds” started across Sunnyside and Woodside. Groups included the NYC Department of Health – Queens Plaza building, NYC Parks – Central Forestry, NYC Parks – Sustainable Parks, and the MilliontreesNYC program team. The July 9th kick-off event spearheaded by Partnership for Parks near the 42nd Street R/M subway station raised awareness among community residents about how they can get involved with the many initiatives that are part of Greening Western Queens.
