Nature’s Nurses mission is to help NYC reach its sustainability goals through educational workshops and hands on environmental stewardship activities in urban areas.
New York City and State legislation requires property owners and managers of municipal facilities, such as landlords and school buildings to make site modifications to control environmental issues like storm-water runoff, Energy Consumption & Chemical Pollution (NYC Dept. of Citywide Administrative Services, 2005). While these changes are vital to the city’s goals, it will be difficult to achieve without the support of its residents. The only way to help combat these issues is to engage the everyday person in understanding their part. The problem is that many people don’t have the information or resources to make it happen.
Nature’s Nurses will help you understand and maintain green infrastructure, stormwater management, waste management and energy efficiency systems in your community.
