Lost Batallion Hall and Detective Keith Williams' Green Teens provide tree care in Rego Park!
The Green Teens were out early Thurs August 14, 2014. Eleven Green Teens provided much needed TLC to trees near the Lost Batallion Hall Recreation Center. The Green Teens from Lost Batallion Hall and Detective Keith Williams worked side by side under the supervision of Million Trees, NAV and Recreation Staff. The tree beds were weeded. The soil was aerated, debris was removed and mulch was added to the tree beds. The difference was quite noticable.The Green Teens learned about the importance of caring for young trees especially in the summer months. Each Green Teens was given a water kanteen as thanks for their hard work. The kanteens will no doubt limit the amount of plastic bottles used by the Green Teens. The Green Teens learned how easy it is to care for and adopt street trees in NYC. If you are interested in adopting a tree near you please follow this link http://stewardship.nycparks.org/.
