About the Event

Tend to the forest with us. This pocket forest was born thanks to the community and local partners who came together in early April 2024. Planted in partnership with funder SUGi in conjunction with RIOC, the Lenape Center and friends from the Yakama region, the first three years are vital to help them grow. Hope you can join us to learn more and spend a couple of hours together outdoors in the beautiful Southpoint Park on Roosevelt Island. All ages are welcome. We will bend down close to weed and check on the health of the plants together. Please bring your reusable waterbottle and dress for mess with sun protection as needed. iDig2Learn can't wait to see you!
