City of Forest Day

Did you know that New York City is home to more than 7 million trees, hundreds of acres of woodlands, and miles of trails? A healthy urban forest is essential for a healthy city—providing critical habitat for wildlife, cleaning our air and water, cooling our neighborhoods, and improving our health and wellbeing.

Presented by Forest for All NYC, City of Forest Day is a day of activities across the city to raise awareness of the importance of the New York City urban forest, and the essential role New Yorkers play every day in caring for the “lungs” of our city.

Here at NYBG, join Eliot Nagele, Director of the Thain Family Forest, for a tour of this 50-acre old-growth woodland as we celebrate the trees of NYC!

All participants must have an NYBG Grounds Access Pass to participate, which are free to Bronx residents.
