What is the National Registry?

Natural resources have been used to revitalize much more than our city streets and towns. Nature has been known to help heal the spirit and to reconnect ourselves to life. In the aftermath of September 11th, many people sought solace in nature: walking through a neighborhood park, sitting in a garden or looking out along the water's edge. Some of us held candlelight vigils for lives lost and brought flowers to the doorways of homes, firehouses and rescue stations. As the seasons change many of us have new ideas for volunteer greening projects to inspire hope, strength, and peace in our communities.

The National Registry of Living Memorials is part of a research database of the U.S. Forest Service that is made available for the public as a historic remembrance of the community-based responses to the tragic events on September 11th The registry has no legal authority and conveys no legal status on or about the living memorial. The purpose and description of each site reflects the words and intent of the public who created that site and not the U.S. Forest Service. It is being provided as a public service. Please contact Forest Service regarding any omissions or errors to ensure completeness and accuracy.
