May 12, 2012:
Join BBG, Prospect Park, and NYC Million Trees for a day of much needed beautification along Flatbush Ave. Volunteers will be led by BBG and NYC Tree Stewards to learn about proper street tree care and will get to put their skills to work on the numerous trees along Flatbush Ave. Volunteers will also get to spruce up the streets by picking up litter and weeding. All are welcome to be a part of this fun filled and educational day!
Come to one of these four check-in locations:
Grand Army Plaza, Prospect Park side

why we're doing it
The trees along Flatbush Ave battle trash, pets, traffic, and the elements. This stretch from GAP to Lenox needs our help. It's crucial to get the community involved to support the continued greening of Flatbush Ave.
Sorry, but this project doesn't have any updates yet.
