NYC Gardens Club Conservation: The mission of the Conservation Committee is to present timely environmental issues to members and the community, to further the restoration and beautification of New York City and to educate children about nature.

For the past 10 years, the Conservation Committee of The City Gardens Club has organized educational forums attracting an audience of CGC members, activists, and the general public. Led by recognized experts in their fields, these annual colloquiums focus on critical environmental issues. To name a few, past topics have included “Overcoming our Nature Deficit,” “Sustainable New York,” “Water, Our Most Important Resource,” and “Living with the Forces of Nature.” (Scroll down for the complete list of past topics.) The committee chose this year’s topic, ” Understanding Biodiversity,” because of its urgency and critical importance.
