Conservation & Sustainability

At the start of 2022, Riverside Park Conservancy launched a new Conservation and Sustainability Initiative let by a two-pronged Department which focuses on several facets of urban park stewardship:

  • managing a brand-new compost compound at 96th Street
  • tracking and expanding natural area conservation,  
  • reducing fossil fuel consumption and waste, 
  • facilitating public education programs,
  • engaging citizen science initiatives and research partnerships,  
  • participating in city-wide advocacy for park equity and environmental justice
