The Westchester Parks Foundation engages the public to advocate for and invest in the preservation, conservation, use, and enjoyment of the 18,000 acres of parks, trails, and open spaces within the Westchester County Parks system.
Each April WPF and the Parks Department host Pitch in for Parks. It is our largest one-day volunteer program which falls around Earth Day every year. Volunteers take on special projects throughout the county parks to help get ready for the peak season. They paint, rake, prepare and plant flower beds, clear trails and shorelines, restore wildlife habitats and remove invasive vines from trees. Join in this community effort and help us prepare for spring!
The Westchester Parks Foundation and Whole Foods Market will be stationed at the Bronx River Reservation location. We will have tshirts, waters, and snacks for volunteers.
Things to bring:
Work gloves if you wish to use you own
YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE PARK YOU PLAN TO VOLUNTEER AT WITH THE CORRECT NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN YOUR PARTY! PLEASE BE AWARE THAT SOME OF THE NATURE CENTERS WILL HAVE THEIR EVENT ON APRIL 22nd!
We look forward to seeing you there!
