New York Restoration Project (NYRP) carries out founder Bette Midler's dream of a cleaner, more beautiful New York City. Focusing its work in underserved neighborhoods throughout the city's five boroughs, NYRP restores and revitalizes city parks, community gardens and open space, as well as provides environmental education and programs to thousands of youth and adults. In partnership with the New York City Parks Department, NYRP is also leading MillionTreesNYC® a citywide initiative that has successfully planted over 300,000 trees. NYRP works every day to instill both individual and civic respect for nature and personal responsibility for contributing to New York City's long-term environmental sustainability.
