Happy Arbor Day everybody!

Right now — at this very minute — Bette Midler along with actress Marcia Gay Harden, the guys from the Blue Man Group, singer-songwriter Brendan James and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus are spending their Arbor Day at McCarren Park in Greenpoint, Brooklyn along with 500 volunteers –including students from Children for Children’s youth programs, BNP Paribas and Greenpoint community residents — planting trees for Arbor Day and the MillionTreesNYC Month.

MillionTreesNYC Month, presented by BNP Paribas, coincides with the arrival of spring to raise public awareness for MillionTreesNYC, a public-private partnership between the Department of Parks & Recreation and the New York Restoration Project (which was founded by Midler) through which one million new trees will be planted and cared for throughout the five boroughs by 2017. As a New York City resident let me just say, “THANKS, THANKS, THANKS!!”

If you don’t know much about the holiday (cause quite honestly, I didn’t) take a trip over to ArborDay.org where you can gather information and learn about some pretty groovy Arbor Day projects. Happy Arbor Day, ya’ll.
