Before the school year ended, St. Saviour High School students and faculty member Janet Cardone joined forces with Trees New York (TreesNY) to plant flowers in tree beds in front of St. Saviour Church.
TreesNY is an environmental and urban forestry nonprofit organization. Its mission is to plant, preserve and protect New York City’s urban forest through education, active citizen participation and advocacy. The program helps educate students about the benefits that trees bring to the urban environment.
