Join the Student Conservation Association for our April ConSERVE NYC event to celebrate Earth Day at Hudson River Park!

Hudson River Park is the longest waterfront park in the United States, stretching four miles along Manhattan’s West Side from W. 59th Street to Battery Place. It is also home to the Hudson River Greenway, the busiest bikeway in the country. SCA AmeriCorps members serve at Hudson River Park each year, helping to introduce park visitors to the natural resources of the Hudson River.

For a second consecutive year, SCA and Hudson River Park are teaming up to celebrate Earth Day through hands-on service. Volunteers will plant native species along the bike path, in addition to planting, weeding, and mulching in the park’s Habitat Garden.

WHEN: Saturday, April 19th, 9:30 am to 2:00 pm

WHERE:  Pier 51, Hudson River Park (W 12th St & West Side Highway, New York, NY 10014)

WHAT: Planting, weeding, and mulching along the border of the Hudson River Greenway bike path and in the park’s Habitat Garden.

BRING WITH YOU: Wear long pants and sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty.

PROVIDED: SCA will provide breakfast and lunch for volunteers as well as work gloves, reusable water bottles, and all project supplies.
