Description: Join the Stewardship Team as we restore Meadow Lake in Flushing Meadows Corona Park! Urban wetlands provide a variety of benefits including improved water quality and storm water retention. They also serve as critical habitat for native wildlife! Volunteers will learn why our wetlands are important and how to carefully remove invasive species. Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, long pants, and clothing that can get dirty. Please bring your own water bottle to this event. Space is limited and registration is required. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.
