NYC Parks needs your help to defend Pelham Bay Park against the mile-a-minute vine! The annual Persicaria perfoliata vine is capable of growing up to six inches a day, often destroying young trees in the process.

Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, long pants, and clothing that can get dirty. Face masks may be worn at your discretion.

Please note: Space is limited and registration is required. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.

This event has been funded in part by NYC Service.
