Description: Celebrate National Urban Biodiversity Week by getting your hands dirty with NYC Audubon and Gateway NRA. Help give native wildflowers some room to grow by cutting back invasive species like Oriental Bittersweet. Many hands will make work light.
Please Note: We recommend being properly outfitted - comfortable shoes, long pants, long sleeve shirt, and wide brimmed hat. Definitely bring water. You may also like to have pruners and gloves, sunscreen, camera, mushroom guidebooks, hand lens or magnifying glass and bug spray. If inclement weather, contact us here via eventbrite.
