Restore Mass Ave is a volunteer-run nonprofit re-growing the historic tree canopy of Embassy Row on Massachusetts Avenue NW.

In our first decade, tree canopy in our project area increased by an amazing 13%.
The Digital Media Manager will post news of our projects. S/he will showcase our model for successful local activism, which needs to be better known to help others re-green their streets.
