Excited for Spring? Experience the blooming buds, chirping chickadees, and warm weather by joining NYC Parks Stewardship and the Natural Areas Conservancy on a trail maintenance hike! As we walk one of the many trails throughout NYC parks, you’ll learn about the geology and ecology of these urban natural areas while helping to maintain the trail systems by clearing overgrown trail corridors, cutting back invasive plants, and removing obstacles and debris.
