Rutgers University's bond with Central Park is as strong as the hardy grass a Rutgers professor plucked from Sheep Meadow in the1960s and cultivated into world-class turf.

Rutgers and the Central Park Conservancy, a non-profit organization responsible for the restoration, maintenance and enhancement of the iconic park in Manhattan, have strengthened their collective expertise in horticulture and turf care ever since through years of collaboration and training.

"The partnership between Rutgers and the Central Park Conservancy is preparing the next generation of environmental stewards with the tools to manage landscapes and help them flourish," said Douglas Blonsky CC'83 , president and chief executive officer of CPC – and a Rutgers graduate.

If Hurricane Sandy and its recent winter cousin, Nemo, taught New Jersey anything, it was that preparing for the worst is not an option, but a necessity in an era of extreme weather events. And learning what to do after disaster strikes is time well spent.
Months after Hurricane Sandy pounded New Jersey, many people are just starting to deal with the clean-up and rebuilding of their flooded homes and businesses. The health hazards associated with water-damaged buildings are numerous, ranging from the obvious – mold and electrical concerns – to the less well known – asbestos contamination and dangers of microbial agents and pathogenic viruses.
