On Sunday afternoons, volunteers go into Highbridge Forest and tackle the modern day challenge of native reforestation. We’ll teach you everything you need to know, from native plant and tree identification to the how, why, and what of invasive species removal. Later, you can tell your friends and family how you helped preserve a forest in the middle of Manhattan!

New members are required to attend an Orientation Session, held on the first Saturday of the month. Email volunteer@nyrp.org or call 917-291-6436 for more details.
