The Highbridge Forest Crew works to remove invasive plants from the park and to care for recently planted native trees.
As part of the Forest Crew you will learn basic invasive and native plant identification, proper removal techniques and an overview of New York Restoration Project’s approach to urban reforestation. Anyone interested in forest ecology, invasive plant removal, and urban forests should join the Forest Crew in their work every Sunday morning.
New members must attend a training and orientation the first Sunday of every month.
