Featured Projects


This is not your average walk in a park
The veteran of more than 20 long-distance wilderness hikes, Liz Thomas knows how to navigate the most remote, wild places on earth. She set the record for the fastest female thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, and she’s gone on to make a living as a trail expert, conservation advocate, and author.
The Power of Playgrounds
We're building playgrounds in all 5 boroughs, designed by kids and communities, because every New Yorker deserves to live within a 10-minute walk of a great park.
New York commuters’ next stop: the Appalachian Trail
On weekdays New York City’s commuter trains are all business, shuttling briefcase-toting commuters between Manhattan and the suburbs. But on the weekends, New Yorkers ride the Metro-North Harlem line to a world away from the office. Believe it or not, the train will take you straight to the Appalachian Trail.
