Forest Restoration Volunteer Event
September 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Join VCPA staff in maintaining a biodiverse forest through the removal of non-indigenous plant species while learning about forest ecology.
Non-indigenous plants such as winged euonymus (Euonymus alatus), bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus), and Norway maple (Acer platanoides), threaten the health of the mature deciduous forests within the Northwest Woods of Van Cortlandt Park. Join VCPA staff as we aim to remove these species.
Meeting location is in the Riverdale Stables Parking Lot at 9am. Please be punctual as the worksite is a ten minute walk into the park. VCPA will provide gloves and tools needed for the work. Please bring along water, and wear long pants and closed toe shoes.
Meet at Riverdale Stables Parking Lot- enter the park at Broadway and Mosholu Avenue.
