Event Details

 

Join the Student Conservation Association for our March ConSERVE NYC event on the Brooklyn Greenway!


The Brooklyn Greenway is a planned 14-mile landscaped route for pedestrians and cyclists along the waterfront of Brooklyn. When complete, the Greenway will connect neighborhood parks and green spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge. At this month's ConSERVE NYC event, volunteers will remove invasive English ivy that is strangling trees along two sections of the Greenway, and will prepare a new section for spring planting by mulching and spreading compost.


This event is part of a yearlong series of public service projects hosted by SCA across New York City. With weekend conservation projects at new sites each month, ConSERVE NYC offers volunteers the opportunity to help build resiliency in New York City's public lands—and to network with others who share an interest in urban conservation. 


WHEN: Sunday, March 23rd, 9:30 am to 2:00 pm

WHERE:  Brooklyn Greenway (meet at the corner of Atlantic Ave & Columbia St). 2/3/4/5 trains to Borough Hall, R to Court Street, A/C/F to Jay St/MetroTech, or F/G to Bergen Street.

WHAT: Removing invasive English ivy, spreading compost, and remediating soil in preparation for spring planting.

BRING WITH YOU: Wear long pants and sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty.
