Volunteers will help steward our woodland garden in Swindler Cove at Sherman Creek Park by participating in tasks such as mulching and weeding native woodland plantings. NYRP staff will also provide an introduction to native and invasive plant identification while teaching volunteers all about the ways the forest understory is changing in New York City and how we can care for it.
Local residents of all ages, high school and college students, and environmental enthusiasts are encouraged to attend. All minors will need to be accompanied by a guardian.
Registration is mandatory. Learn more and register here.
