Fwd: Stewardship Abounds in Inwood Hill Park

Caring for Inwood Hill Park's Forest    Natural Areas Conservancy Forum    Thank you to everyone who came out for the Natural Areas Conservancy's  Program with Dr. Eric Sanderson of the Mannahatta Project on September  21st at the Payson Center. The presentation on the Natural Areas  Conservancy's Inwood Ecological Assessment and the tour of the park  that followed led by Dr. Eric Sanderson and NAC ecologists was  wonderful! We even had the pleasure of having Sid Horenstein, Educator  Emeritus with the American Museum of Natural History join us.     To find out more about the work of the Natural Areas Conservancy in  Inwood Hill Park, visit the Natural Areas Conservancy website  <>  .     Join NYC Parks and MillionTrees for a Tree Stewardship Day in Inwood's  Forest    Saturday, October 25    9 a.m. to 1 p.m.    Inwood Hill Park's Dyckman Fields    Over seven years have passed since the City launched MillionTreesNYC  and over 903,000 trees have already been planted. Tree care and  stewardship are the next critical steps to ensuring that newly planted  trees grow into strong, mature, trees and enhance the health and  resiliency of our urban forest. Get involved in our Fall Stewardship  Day and join us in caring for new forest trees by removing invasive  weeds and litter, and adding mulch, at Inwood Hill Park on Saturday,  October 25th, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. This is a great event for individuals  and groups high school age and above. We require a 1:10 adult to  student ratio for high school groups. MillionTreesNYC will supply all  tools and refreshments. We will also issue community service letters  for students fulfilling service requirements. Pre-register online now  <>  .         --  Powered by PHPlist, --
