Parks Revitalization – Celebrate Earth Day at Fort Tryon Park
April 28 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Celebrate Earth Day by being a great park steward—give back to the park by volunteering with the Friends Committee of the Fort Tryon Park Trust and NYC Parks at a Beautification Day. This event is great for groups!
Plants, tools, gloves and refreshment will be provided. Wear long pants and sturdy shoes.
We will meet at the Entrance to the Heather Garden at 11AM on Sunday, April 28, 2019. All volunteers will need to sign in upon arrival at the table at the entrance.
For public transportation to the Park, take the A train to the 190th St stop. Follow signs in the station for Fort Tryon Park / the Cloisters to the elevator exit; the elevator will take visitors to the subway terrace level of Fort Tryon Park. The entrance to Heather Gardens is across the roundabout driveway at the top of the stairs after exiting the station.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about logistics or signing up groups.
