Olmsted Gala

South Park
Posted at 11:47 AM, Sep 09, 2016

The theme of this year’s gala, Year of The Tree, is in conjunction with the ten-year anniversary of the October Storm of 2006. In less than 24 hours, more than 12,000 trees in the Olmsted Park System were damaged. 

The aftermath was shocking and severe, and we remember mourning the loss of our signature urban forest.  The Olmsted Parks, Parkways and Circles, 1,200 acres in all, were significantly scarred. We would like to acknowledge the top ReLeaf stewards who supported the Conservancy’s restoration efforts following this unforeseen event.
