A new project gathering steam on Kickstarter aims to create a pop-up forest in the middle of NYC. This project would transform Times Square overnight into a temporary wilderness exhibition with native trees, flowers, and ferns.

This project is desirable because it appeals to many senses — “The cacophony of street noise will be quieted and replaced by a live stream of wildlife sounds from nearby woods. Visitors’ sensory experiences will be enhanced through guided woodland walks, interpretive signs, and hands-on educational activities for children.” and is something that is completely in contrast to what exists now — “The hustle and bustle of Times Square will momentarily slip away with flowering shrubs, mosses, and understory vegetation providing beauty and important sustenance for migrating birds and pollinating insects.”
