New York City’s forests, wetlands, and grasslands provide space for millions of New Yorkers to get outside and enjoy nature — and on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 the Natural Areas Conservancy celebrated these beloved spaces during our Night for Nature Virtual Gala. Guests heard from NAC staff and notable community members as they highlighted the NAC’s most recent successes and shared how our organization is continuing to care for natural areas — especially as New Yorkers need them the most. We sincerely thank everyone who supported this event and viewed our virtual programs.
