100 trees give voice to 100 perspectives
TREE MUSEUM celebrated the communities and ecosystems along the Grand Concourse, a 100 year-old boulevard in The Bronx.
Visitors could listen in on local stories and the intimate lives of trees offered by current and former residents: from beekeepers to rappers, historians to gardeners, school kids to scientists.
Tree-hugging was encouraged but not mandatory!
TREE MUSEUM included a series of public programs, including Grand Concourse Haiku Hikes led by E.J. McAdams. Taking school children out of the classroom and into the streets and parks was one of the many highlights of the project.
Most call you a weed
You are a flower
