Our theme this year was "Roosevelt Island Trees," and together we endeavored to help kids and parents open their eyes to the rich variety of trees on the island. Kids (and plenty of kids-at-heart) completed tree ID coloring pages, designed their own collages from the leaves of red maple, cottonwood, and other island trees, and colored in intricate leaf mandalas. In short, we were a hit!
Special thanks go out to volunteers Halima Aouchette, Karen Lee, Robert Ostergaard, Madeline Richard, Anthony Longo, Jenna Longo, Julia Ferguson, and RIGC President Neal Weissman. And a huge thank you goes to Jessica Murray of RIOC for asking the RIGC to be a part of this event.
