Thank Nature Day

December 1 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

Volunteers are invited to join the Irvington Green Policy Task Force, the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct and the Hastings Vine Squad in thanking nature during Thanksgiving time for giving us a beautiful home.

Please join us to improve the Aqueduct’s plant life by removing invasives, lopping tree-strangling vines, and cleaning up litter. We will be working with expert naturalists from the above-mentioned organizations.

Meeting location: Main Street School parking lot, 101 Main Street, Irvington, NY 10533

Work area: On the trail between MSS and West Sunnyside Lane

Perks: Helping protect biodiversity by removing invasive plants; freeing trees of invasive vines so that they can breathe and keep doing the critical work of capturing carbon dioxide; working off that Thanksgiving turkey! 😊

Bring: Reusable gloves, loppers and clippers if possible (a limited amount will be available if you cannot bring). Wear long pants and shirts.

Please register prior to the event if possible. Registering in advance gives us an idea of how many are coming and gives us contact information for future invasive vine cutting events in Irvington, but all are welcome even without advanced signup. The registration link is here: https://forms.gle/FfPWEjmkMeDfahBZ7

Volunteers will also need to fill out the volunteer service agreement, which can be found here: https://www.parks.ny.gov/inside-our-agency/documents/Permits/VolunteerServiceAgreementEnglish.pdf

PLEASE JOIN US & HELP US SPREAD THE WORD. Thank you!
