Water Chestnut Wednesdays
July 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Wednesday, repeating until July 27, 2022
Water chestnut (Trapa natans) is a non-indigenous, aquatic plant that harms the ecological, and recreational value of waterways here in the Northeast. VCPA leads the effort in removing the harmful plant species. Come join us and learn more about freshwater ecology, put on a pair of waders, or hop in a canoe, all the while helping improve the health of the pond.
VCPA will provide gloves and any tools needed. Please wear long pants, and bring along plenty of water and an extra pair of socks (just in case!)
Please be advised as of 12/27/21, a vaccine mandate has been ordered by the City of New York. In order to participate in Van Cortlandt Park Alliance volunteer events, all volunteers must be vaccinated.
