2022 Night for Nature

New York City’s natural areas provide space for millions of New Yorkers to get outside and enjoy nature — and on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 the Natural Areas Conservancy celebrated these beloved spaces during Night for Nature at The View at Battery Park.

We want to thank our Night for Nature supporters for joining us on Tuesday to celebrate ten years of the Natural Areas Conservancy and to recognize the achievements of our honorees Stacy Sonnenberg and Veronica White. What a wonderful way to kick off the upcoming summer season! And we cherished marking this major NAC milestone with all of you.
