Forest Restoration Fridays
December 8, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
Help preserve the beautiful 640 acres of urban woodland in Van Cortlandt Park through our Forest Fridays initiative!
For December’s Forest Fridays we will be working in the Northeast Woods for two sessions on 12/8 and 12/15. We will meet in front of the Woodlawn Playground.
Working with the Van Cortlandt Park Alliance, community members can actively participate in maintaining the health of the Bronx’s forested landscape.
Join us to engage in hands-on, meaningful work such as removal of invasive trees and shrubs, preparing planting sites, planting, and much more. Forest 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.
