About this event

Join the Freshkills Park Alliance for a Painting Project at our Visitor Center. Together we will work to remove old paint from the stairs and then apply a fresh new coat of blue to freshen things up before the snow comes! We will also be hanging a few birdhouses around our Visitor Center to attract hungry and nesting swallows in the spring.

Registration: Each ticket admits 1 car, containing up to 5 participants. During registration you will be asked about additional participants in your car.

Transportation: By registering for this event, you confirm you will provide your own transportation. Because the site is not open to the public, all participants must provide their own car that will stay on-site the whole time. Participants may not use a bicycle, taxi or ride-share service.

Location: We will meet in the LA Fitness parking lot (350 Wild Avenue, Staten Island NY 10314) before entering the Freshkills Park site together.

Gear: Wear a hat and sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or muddy. Please also bring water, a snack, and sunblock.
