Recycle your holiday tree by bringing it to Van Cortlandt Park, where the VCP Forest Restoration Crew will chip it into mulch! While you are there, stop by and say hi to VCPA’s Urban Eco-Teens and make a birdfeeder to take home. This event will take place in the “free lot” near the Van Cortlandt Golf Course; as you drive in from Bailey Avenue, it will be the first parking lot on your left.
VCP’s Forest Restoration Crew will also be on site to chip trees on Saturday, January 9. For more information on additional locations and dates, visit NYC Parks’ Mulchfest page.
