The Greater New York Councils is an official partner of MillionTreesNYC, a citywide tree planting and stewardship initiative that establishes a goal of planting one million trees throughout the city’s five boroughs by 2017.
As a partner, the Greater New York Councils participates in the advisory committee as well as planning tree planting, education and outreach initiatives. Over the last two years, Scouts from across the city have planted thousands of trees in parks, on streets and at William H. Pouch Scout Camp in Staten Island, as well as assisted in their care and maintenance. For more information on how you can help make our city greener and greater, visitwww.milliontreesnyc.org. Scouts can earn patches, service time and complete advancement requirements through this partnership. Please view the details here. A citywide Scouting service day is planned for April 24, 2010. Hope you can join us!
