East River Park Cleanup this Weekend

There are two volunteer opportunities this weekend to help clean up East River Park.

The first, on Saturday, is focused specifically on removing debris left behind by Sandy’s floods. This will be a large effort, so you if you want to participate, please register online here.

Volunteers are asked to arrive by 9:30 at the track house next to the 6th Street pedestrian bridge. Work will take place from 10:00 to 1:00 pm.

On Sunday, the Lower East Side Ecology Center is already looking forward to spring! Volunteers will be planting daffodil bulbs in several flower beds throughout the park. If you are interested in joining this project, please email Beth Bingham to let her know that you’ll be there. Again, volunteers will meet at 9:30 at the track house; work is expected to last from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.
