12:00pm – 4:00pm
Dig in and make a difference for Earth Day! Join Greenburgh Nature Center for a day of volunteer projects and workshops where you’ll learn ways to care for the Earth. Opportunities to get your hands dirty include planting our gardens, turning the compost, removing invasives, clearing our trails, and mulching our footpaths. Participate in workshops on beekeeping and backyard composting and be an environmental steward in our tree planting ceremony with NYS Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins. Free event!
As a thank you to our community, we are pleased to announce that the Greenburgh Nature Center will be hosting a Compost Giveback Day on Saturday, April 27. We invite you to bring your own shovel and stop by any time from 11 am to 3 pm to pick up finished compost FREE of charge (while supplies last).
Get your hands dirty:
This year our volunteer project will focus on removing English Ivy from our trails and grounds. English Ivy grows along the ground as well as into the forest canopy and can weaken native plants that are growing in the area allowing them to out compete natives and takeover natural spaces. No pre-registration necessary for this project.
Pre-registered volunteer projects:
– Organic Garden Bed Prep
– Litter Sweep
