Join us on Saturday, 4 June for NYC Parks’ TreesCount! Data Jam!

Join us for NYC Parks’ TreesCount! Data Jam!

On Saturday, June 4th, we will unveil NYC’s latest urban forest dataset, the most spatially accurate map of New York City’s street trees. Join NYC Parks, TreesCount! partners, tree care volunteers, and other civic hackers to learn about your urban forest and what impact street trees have on our daily lives.

We are looking for data scientists, statisticians, developers, designers, visualizers, cartographers, and quants. Bring your skills, questions, and creativity to this data jam!

To spark and sustain public engagement, NYC Parks launched the TreesCount! campaign. To date, more than 2,300 New Yorkers have voluntreered helping complete the first comprehensive map of our city’s street trees.

Now, it’s your turn to help us transform the data, gathered thus far, into actionable insights. Whether you are new to hacking or experienced, bring your data expertise and join us for NYC’s first TreesCount! Data Jam and Workshop.

Join us to improve our understanding of and plan for the future our City’s urban forest!
