Forest Park, the third largest park in Queens, needs your help in maintaining the hiking trails that help you explore its 165 acres of majestic oak forest.  Help us get the trails ready for spring during our March Mulch Madness volunteer workday event. We will mulch and clean sections of the Yellow and Bird Trail.

Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, long pants, and clothing that can get dirty. Please bring your own water bottle and lunch for this event.  Volunteers younger than18 years old must be accompanied by a chaperone.

Please note: Space is limited. Registration opens at 9 a.m. on February 25. Registration for this event is required by March 15. To register, please visit the March Mulch Madness registration page.

This event is sponsored by NYC Parks, The Forest Park Trust, Inc., and the New York/New Jersey Trails Club.
