About the FRW Organization

  • Seeks non-financial partnerships with environmental and botanical organizations.
  • Tools donated by board members and Tarrytown's Goldberg Hardware with help from National ReSources, developer of Hudson Harbor.
  • Seeks funding for illustrated signage, plant material and public education regarding invasives versus non-invasives, green infra-structure (bio-swales, wetlands, drainage and water filtering).
