Opportunity Details

Planting Site Prep

Volunteers will join us in identifying and cutting invasive plant species along the brook. This project will prepare the area for an upcoming planting project to improve the biodiversity of Tibbetts Brook and bring back wildlife habitats. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old, or 5 - 14 years old with an adult and signed Youth Waiver to participate in this event. Volunteers under the age of 12 will conduct litter pickup to keep this special park clean and pristine! Wear closed toe shoes, long sleeves, long pants and items you do not mind getting dirty. Bring a reusable water bottle. Tools, gloves, and instruction will be provided. A volunteer waiver form will be provided at check-in and must be signed by each volunteer prior to starting work. PARKING: When you enter the park, let the attendant know you are volunteering with Westchester Parks Foundation so they do not charge you for parking. Continue straight down the driveway, pass the first large parking lot on your right, and proceed until you see the maintenance garage on your right.  After the garage, park in the next large parking lot on your right, next to the athletic fields.  Once parked, proceed across the driveway to check in with Megan at the WPF table. This project is a part of 9/11: Serve +
