Multiflora Rose Removal at Van Cortlandt Park
January 5 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EST
Please note that our event for Saturday January 20th has been canceled due to extremely cold weather forecast.
Join the Van Cortlandt Park Alliance for our Forest Fridays and special Saturday this January, where we’ll tackle the pervasive Multiflora rose. Our efforts will focus on uprooting these invasive species, clearing the way for native wetland biodiversity to thrive.
- Dates: Four Fridays in January and a special event on Saturday, January 20th
- Time: 10 AM – 1 PM
- Location: Meet at the Van Cortlandt Park Alliance Education Garden & Compost site.
- What to Expect: Engaging in environmental restoration by removing Multiflora rose. They do have thorns, but we will try to avoid them by cutting and removing carefully.
- What to Bring: Wear sturdy, thick clothing (preferably not nylon) to protect against thorns. Gloves and tools provided.
Be part of the change and help us restore the natural beauty of our urban oasis!
Bring your own hot beverage and wear plenty of layers!
