04/30 Inwood HIll Park Forest Restoration

Save to Favorites

NYC Parks Stewardship Program

Volunteer with the Stewardship Team to protect the forested areas in Inwood Hill Park! Each spring, the garlic mustard plant (Allaria petiolata) can be found blanketing the ground of many New York City natural areas. This invasive herb emits chemical compounds that prevent native seeds from sprouting, and can cause serious harm to local habitats. Volunteers will learn how to identify and safely remove invasive plants in order to help restore the forest and create a healthier ecosystem. 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.
