Spring Benefit 2023: Striding Towards Sustainability

Striding Towards Sustainability defines the Conservancy’s approach to all aspects of building a more sustainable park – from climate resiliency to environmental justice to financial stability. Here are just some of the strides we are making:

– Increasing biodiversity, reducing trash and emissions, improving erosion control, and creating education opportunities that empower park users to join us in addressing the climate crisis.

– Bringing more resources to the Park between 120th to 181st Streets, including full-time zone gardeners who work alongside volunteers to improve landscapes, amenities and accessibility, and to advocate for park equity for underserved neighborhoods.

– Building a community of annual donors whose sustained contributions are helping to ensure the Conservancy’s long-term financial health.
