FMCP’s Environmental Stewardship Team – Fall Kickoff @ Flushing Meadows Corona Park
Oct 16 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
FMCP's Environmental Stewardship Team - Fall Kickoff @ Flushing Meadows Corona Park | New York | United States

Join the Environmental Stewardship Team on Saturday, October 16th for our Fall Kickoff event at Meadow Lake!

While FMCP is home to many native species, invasive plants threaten the growth and development of our wetland environment by decreasing the biodiversity of our native birds, fish, animals, and insects due to less sources of familiar food and shelter being available. As we remove the invasive plants, we make room for native species to recover and thrive, along with beatifying the park.

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city by coming to our green haven to clear our gardens and your minds as we restore key park areas to their rightful condition. We welcome people of all ages and all help will be greatly appreciated. No experience necessary!
