About

Lower East Side Ecology Center is an environmental nonprofit dedicated to

environmental education through local community based programming. Based in

East River Park, our Stewardship program is aimed to teach volunteers how to

identify invasive plant species in the park, and be stewards for the park through

planting, mulching, and composting. We work to make the park storm-resilient and

beautiful all year round!
