Superstorm Sandy was the sixth-costliest hurricane in the history of the U.S. In NYC, 48 people died, thousands were evacuated, and there was an estimated loss of $19 billion in economic impacts. The storm eroded miles of coastline; flooded 17% of the city, including subway tunnels; overwhelmed water treatment plants; and downed trees across the five boroughs. Between Sandy and the nor’easter that followed it, NYC lost more than 10,000 trees to storm winds and saltwater.

Join us to revisit the City’s response to Sandy and the long-lasting impacts to the city’s trees and green infrastructure. We’ll hear from NYC Parks staff about the immediate storm response, how the City handled the immense amounts of woody debris, and how the lessons learned from Sandy have changed the City’s storm response.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.

This calendar provides a listing of all DEC-sponsored events that are open to the public. You can click on any event in the calendar to view additional details about the event. Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas. We welcome people with disabilities to all of our programs. Please call the contact number ahead of time to let us know your specific needs and we will be happy to learn how we can best serve you.
