NEW YORK CITY PARKSSeptember 28 | 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation (NYC Parks) is the steward of more than 30,000 acres of land
— 14 percent of New York City — including more than 5,000 individual properties ranging from Coney Island Beach and Central Park to community gardens and Greenstreets. NYC Parks looks after 600,000 street trees and two million more in parks. They are New York City's principal providers of recreational and athletic facilities and programs.
Alumnae volunteers will spend the morning caring for local street trees in the Bronx. We will learn how to aerate, cultivate, mulch, and identify street trees---and the important role street trees play in New York City. Please bring a water bottle and wear closed-toed shoes and clothes that can get dirty.
We will meet at the corner of McGraw Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue (near Virginia Playground) in the Bronx. There is a 6 train stop one block south at Parkchester.
