Community Volunteer Day: Forest Restoration

Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx contains 640 acres of forest and freshwater wetlands. Join Van Cortlandt Park Alliance in maintaining this important ecosystem. The Northwest Forest in particular is mainly derived of an oak-hickory community in the canopy. Winged euonymus, also known as burning bush, is a harmful shrub species commonly planted in yards. It threatens the recruitment of oaks and hickories in the understory and limits the biodiversity of the forest and has populated the understory of the Northwest Forest. Volunteers will assist VCPA staff in removing the winged euonymus from the forest. Register on Eventbrite
