Monthly Service Day - Trail Maintenance in Hammock Grove

Do you have a green thumb? Join the Trust for Governors Island horticulture team to care for the natural landscapes through a hands-on volunteer project. With over 120 acres of open space and a small gardening team, volunteers provide invaluable support as we strive to create biodiverse and beautiful environments for both humans and wildlife to enjoy. We appreciate your help!

Opportunity Details:
Date - Friday January 27th (rescheduled from January 25th)
Time - 8:30am to 11:45am 
Location - Hammock Grove


Volunteers will mulch pathways and play areas in Hammock Grove, the urban forest central to Governors Island. This past season, our horticulture team has created over 400 feet of new pathways in Hammock Grove, offering visitors the opportunity to escape under the tree canopy and explore the Island's biodiversity even closer. Join Leo, Gardener at the Trust for Governors Island, to learn about the horticulture team's work to expand native plant communities on Governors Island, while contributing directly to the care and maintenance of our urban forest.

No gardening experience is necessary. Gloves, tools, and supplies will be provided to all volunteers.

More in-depth information, including meeting place and a complimentary ferry ticket, will be provided over email the week of the event. In the case of inclement weather, we will cancel the volunteer event over email.
