In a year of immense challenge, sacrifice, and loss, the Greenbelt Conservancy and the Greenbelt remained open and serving the public. Thanks to the leadership of our Board of Directors, the dedication of our staff, and the unwavering support of donors like you, our mission remained resilient and accessible.
The year of 2020, despite its hardships, has also been a time that Staten Islanders experienced first-hand the importance of the Greenbelt, not simply as a beautiful oasis, but as a necessity. For more visitors than ever before, the Greenbelt is now a new living room, office, classroom, gym, quiet place, and gathering space. It is a location of making memories and celebrating life, even in difficult times.
Throughout 2020, the Greenbelt Conservancy exhibited adaptability and determination in serving our community. From a seamless pivot to a virtual environmental education platform to the implementation of socially distant in-person hikes, volunteer projects, and trail races, the Greenbelt Conservancy stayed connected and provided safe opportunities for community engagement, learning, and fun.

We are so thankful to all of our friends and supporters who have stood by us throughout this difficult year. Thank you, and Happy Holidays!
