Riverside Park’s Annual Leaf Lift 2023

November 18, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

With trees come leaves – and when they fall in the park, we need your help to clean them up!

Join Riverside Park Conservancy to rake leaves off of our pathways, high-traffic areas, and lawns to prevent them from clogging storm drains, making pathways slippery, and smothering the grass.

To RSVP, click on the links below:

SIGN UP: Volunteer House Location (West 108th Street)

SIGN UP: Palisades Playground Location (West 148th Street)

All leaves will be added to our compost pile and turned into valuable mulch for use throughout the park.

What to wear/bring:

• Your own (filled!) water bottle

• Sturdy, closed-toe shoes

• Long pants

• Comfortable clothing that can get dirty

Keep all personal items with you at all times, as we will not have a secure area for bags.

For the safety of our staff and volunteers, if on the day of the project you are sick or not feeling well, STAY HOME! It is not worth the risk to you or to others.

Families and volunteers of all ages are welcome. For more info, email [email protected].
