Forest Restoration Fridays in Woodlawn
September 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Friday, repeating until September 30, 2022
With 640 acres of forest and wetlands, Van Cortlandt Park could use your help!
Non-indigenous plant species such as angelica tree (Aralia elata), bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus), and alder buckthorn (Frangula alnus) threaten the health of the forest in the Northeastern section of Van Cortlandt Park. Come learn out why, and help VCPA staff remove these species to prepare for a planting event in October.
We will meet in front of the Woodlawn Playground at 9am, and promptly walk into the woods from there. The walk in to the worksite is approximately 5 minutes long. VCPA will provide gloves and tools. Please wear long pants and closed toe shoes, and bring plenty of water.
Meet at Woodlawn Playground- just south of Van Cortlandt Park East and Kepler Avenue.
