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.

Volunteer with Natural Areas Volunteers (NAV) at Van Cortlandt Park to help protect our young trees from deer browse. Volunteers will be trained in proper fitting and installation of tree guards. These tree guards will prevent deer from rubbing and feeding on young trees. Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes and warm clothing that can get dirty. Please meet your NAV Technical Leader at East 238th Street and Van Cortlandt Park East.

Space is limited. Registration is required for this event.
