Rego Park Green Alliance Gets Tree Education & Trees For P.S. 139
It took over three months but we did it! TreesNY donated 5 trees, two arborists, and an educational coordinator to help P.S. 139 plant trees, educate over 120 kids about trees and tree maintenance and help us have pride in our school. The educational coordinator went into over 5 classes ranging from grades 1-5, talked about trees for 20 minutes, and took the kids outside and helped them plant trees. Arborists were on hand to answer questions and help install the trees. NY1 interviewed people from our school. P.S. 139 was on NY1 and had the opportunity to tell their story to all of NYC.
