New York City Department of Parks and Recreation
10 AmeriCorps members will recruit, manage, and train volunteers and students to focus on environmental stewardship in underserved neighborhoods in New York City. At the end of the three-year period, we anticipate working with 2,400 volunteers, 13,206 students, maintaining 1,017 newly planted street trees, planting 1,350 trees in community tree plantings, improving 6 miles of beaches and recreation trails and restoring 10 acres of degraded natural parkland. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of Environmental Stewardship. The CNCS investment of $132,999 will be matched with $365,994.
