On May 18th, we lost a much beloved educator and community member Matthew Jensen. Mr. Jensen was a teacher at PS 110 in Greenpoint, an outspoken advocate for social issues and avid lover of nature. Like so many students, parents, and neighbors, NCA had the pleasure of getting to know Mr. Jensen in recent years through our work with PS 110 and his visits to Kingsland Wildflowers.
Mr. Jensen’s family has asked that Kingsland Wildflowers accept donations in his honor, which we will use for upkeep and expansion of the wildflower meadows and our educational programming. Donations can be made online here of by sending a check to:
Newtown Creek Alliance
520 Kingsland Avenue, 3rd Floor
Brooklyn, NY 11222
We look forward to working with our project partners to further honor and highlight Matt’s life, dedication and ideals at Kingsland Wildflowers.
