What is the National Registry?
Natural resources have been used to revitalize much more than our city streets and towns. Nature has been known to help heal the spirit and to reconnect ourselves to life. In the aftermath of September 11th, many people sought solace in nature: walking through a neighborhood park, sitting in a garden or looking out along the water's edge. Some of us held candlelight vigils for lives lost and brought flowers to the doorways of homes, firehouses and rescue stations. As the seasons change many of us have new ideas for volunteer greening projects to inspire hope, strength, and peace in our communities.
The National Registry shares information about these projects from across the country. You can search for projects at left by name, state, or type of site. This information serves as a resource for individuals, communities, government agencies, businesses, and non-profit organizations.
