Friends of Corlears Hook Park

Join us to work off some of that large holiday meal and stress at our annual post-Thanksgiving leaf raking event. Come help us clean the park by raking and bagging leaves that will then be sent to the Lower East Side Ecology Center for composting. We will supply all the tools, gloves and equipment. We just need your helping hands and smiling face for any amount of time that you can give. Student groups and those needing community service hours are welcome to attend. There will be something for all ages to help with.

All social distancing protocols will be in place and face coverings are required for all participants. A supply of hand sanitizer and face coverings will be made available for those who arrive without. In order to comply with NYC Parks Department requirements for holding events we ask you to register ahead of time for this event.
