Introducing Our Fresh New Look

Andrew Maas | December 12, 2020: 
To wrap up our 40th anniversary year, we have reinvigorated our logo and style to better reflect all the habitat we protect and create in New York City. Executed by the talented team at reitdesign, our refreshed logo offers a view into a greener New York City, highlighting the City’s grassy and forested areas and incredible shorefront—with our mascot, the American Kestrel, soaring above. We hope our new look encourages New Yorkers across the five boroughs to join us in exploring and conserving these precious and critical habitats.
