Bette is an amazing woman who is making a difference. Through her leadership of the New York Restoration Project (NYRP) and with the help of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, the goal is for one million new trees to be planted and cared for across NYC’s five boroughs by 2017.
Today Bette was at the with 5th grade students from NYRP’s RespecTree education program. They were joined by employees of BNP Paribas and Toyota (sponsors). We caught up with them as they were planting trees. Take a look at our video.
(By the way, my first job out of college was for the Parks Department).
