NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

Harvesting Native Cuttings at Bronx River Forest

Thursday, February 21, 2013

9:00 a.m.1:00 p.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Come help Natural Areas Volunteers harvest live wood from willow and dogwood shrubs. Get the chance to learn why the Bronx River is so important to our local ecosystem! Volunteers will help cut and gather live branches. These branches will then be planted in the month of March for a bioengineering project to help stabilize an eroding bank along the Bronx River. Come dressed in closed-toe shoes, long pants and clothing that can get dirty.

Space is limited, and registration is required.
