Environmental Stewardship's Fall Kickoff at Flushing Meadows Corona Park

Environmental Stewardship's Fall Kickoff

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Join the Environmental Stewardship Team for their 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. Help remove invasive plants to 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 this green haven to clear the gardens and your minds and to restore key park areas to their rightful condition. People of all ages are welcome and all help will be greatly appreciated. No experience necessary!
