Sunday, April 2, 2017

10:00 a.m.2:00 p.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Volunteers weeded in December, and now it’s time to put in the blooms!

Help plant perennials (asters, lobelia, rudbeckia), native grasses, sedges, ferns, and shrubs, and learn best practices for your own gardens or planters at home.  

Flushing Meadows Corona Park will provide trowels, shovels, and gardening gloves, but bring your own tools and gloves if you have them, and a bottle of water.

This wonderful day in the great outdoors is co-sponsored by Flushing Meadows Corona Park and the Alliance for Flushing Meadows Corona Park. 

Please note: Space is limited and registration is required. To register, please visit allianceforfmcp.org/stewardship or call (718) 760-6561.
