Team RIVER Volunteers
October 20 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:30 am on Thursday and Saturday, repeating until November 19, 2022
Volunteer with the Team RIVER (Randall’s Island Volunteer Ecological Restorers) and help keep Randall’s Island beautiful! Everybody who volunteers regularly with Team RIVER will be presented opportunities to learn plant identification skills, enjoy volunteer appreciation events, attend an occasional seminar on relevant subjects with an expert guest speaker and share their own relevant expertise. If you are only able to volunteer on a limited basis, you are still very much welcome!
Volunteers must be at least 14 years old. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by their legal guardian before starting any work. Children under 16 must also have an adult with them while volunteering (please contact [email protected] for a copy of the waiver).
Registration is required through Eventbrite.
