Volunteers Plant 1,800 Trees In Bayswater Park
As part of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan to make New York more green, 1,800 baby trees were planted behind and to the sides of the ball field in Bayswater Park near Beach 35 Street last Friday. The goal for MillionTreesNYC, a citywide public/private program, is to plant one million trees throughout the city over the next decade. The event was put together by Earth Day New York's Nurturing Nature program with the cooperation of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
Staff members from the Parks Department and the Natural Resource Group and 70 volunteers took part in the planting.
