Kingsland Point Park Volunteer Day: April 2nd, 2011.

March 17, 2011

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011, at 10am.

A morning of removing invasive vines, cleaning up trash, and assessing the condition of our park on the Hudson River!

All participants should park their cars in the park’s two lots, and not at the Metro-North train station. If you live in Sleepy Hollow or Tarrytown, please make this no-emissions event by walking or biking.

If you are interested in helping remove the porcelainberry, oriental bittersweet, and other invasives choking the trees between the park entrance and the new Scenic Hudson Katheryn Davis RiverWalk Center, bring your own pruners or loppers (but not hatchets, axes, or any other “swinging” tools, and no chain saws or other power tools), wear long sleeves and pants, and meet by the park entrance booth. Some gloves will be provided, but bring your own if you have them. For this work, adults and children over 12 only, please. For more on how we will control vines, see the Bronx River Conservancy’s VineCutter web site:

To clean trash, wear long clothes and bring gloves if you have them. Trash bags will be provided. Teams can clean the entire park. Please meet near the bathrooms near the parking lots. Younger children should be supervised by adults.

Teams assessing the condition of the park — looking for broken tables, holes in fences, etc. — should wear proper footwear. Younger children should be accompanied by adults.
