August 25th event has been canceled due to rainy weather.
Help preserve the beautiful 640 acres of urban woodland in Van Cortlandt Park through our Forest Fridays initiative! As part of the Van Cortlandt Park Alliance, community members can actively participate in maintaining the health of the Bronx’s forested landscape.
Join us every Friday to engage in hands-on, meaningful work such as removal of invasive trees and shrubs, preparing planting sites, planting, and much more. Forest Restoration Fridays are not just about manual labor, they are a fantastic opportunity to learn about forest ecology and conservation while making a tangible difference!
All tools will be provided and no prior experience is needed. Just bring your enthusiasm, your love for nature, and plenty of water. Make sure to dress appropriately with long pants and sturdy closed-toe shoes.
Please Note: We will leave the meeting location promptly at 9:15am. It will be difficult to find us afterwards so please arrive on time.
Meet us at the VCPA Garden and Compost Site, ready to dig in and have fun!
