Join Stu­dent Con­ser­va­tion Asso­ci­a­tion and the New York Restora­tion Project to help Con­SERVE New York City this Earth Day! 

Togeth­er, they will give­away 250 trees to NYC res­i­dents like you! Sign up to take home one of nine native tree species, includ­ing Tulip Poplar, Ser­vice­ber­ry, Black Tupelo, and more! To pick up a free tree, you must agree to:

- plant in one of the five bor­oughs;
— keep trees prop­er­ly watered and main­tained;
— and plant your tree in the ground of your yard or com­mu­ni­ty gar­den and NOT along streets or in city parks.

Please RSVP  for your free tree! Note: There is a two tree max­i­mum for par­tic­i­pants in give­aways this year. Fam­i­ly mem­bers must be present to claim their own trees.

Come for a tree but be sure to stick around for the fes­tiv­i­ties, work­shops, and ser­vice oppor­tu­ni­ties. With sup­port from Amer­i­can Express and South­west Air­li­nes, SCA is bring­ing togeth­er hun­dreds of fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers for vol­un­teers projects and activ­i­ties at River­bank State Park in Man­hat­tan.
