If only that were true, or at least a lot more true in New York. Want to do a little bit to help with making this a reality?
There are (at least) two similar initiatives that are pushing for more trees:
The One Million Trees Project is being supported by the ABA. So, if you're reading this and you're out of law school get in touch with them and pick up a shovel.
CUNY is part of the Million Tree NYC campaign, which is part of PlaNYC. Multiple CUNY campuses are the sites of organized plantings on May 1st.
If you want to get involved, sign up here:
The Kissena Corridor plantings are relatively close to the law school.
Green Coalition - Let's plant! If you sign up at the link above, you can chose Queens College as your college (I know, I know) and put "CUNY School of Law - Green Coalition" in the Student Club/Organization field. May 1st is our last day of classes! Let's celebrate in the dirt. Before returning to the library for the next two weeks of finals prep.
