Forest Restoration Fridays
August 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Friday, repeating until August 27, 2022
Van Cortlandt Park boasts 640 acres of forest and wetlands right here in the Bronx. Help staff maintain the forest every Friday!
Every Friday during August 2022, volunteers can join VCPA staff in maintaining the Northwest Forest of Van Cortlandt Park. Work will entail removal of non-indigenous plant species such as winged euonymus, multiflora rose, and Norway maple.
Volunteers can meet VCPA staff outside the Educational Garden and Compost Site, located nearby the Riverdale Stables parking lot. We will provide gloves and any tools needed for the project. Make sure to where long pants, closed-toe shoes, and bring along plenty of water. We look forward to seeing you out in the Park!
Please be advised as of 12/27/21, a vaccine mandate has been ordered by the City of New York. In order to participate in Van Cortlandt Park Alliance volunteer events, all volunteers must be vaccinated.
