Friends of Morningside Park
In March 2021, Friends of Morningside Park launched Volunteer "Second Saturdays" in Morningside Park as a way for the community to give back to a Park that means so much to so many!
Join your neighbors and help beautify the Park from 10:00 am - Noon every second Saturday of the month, March through November. No experience is necessary. Clean-up supplies, safety guidelines and project instructions will all be provided. Gloves are recommended.
To join us, please check the Sign Up Box on your desired date(s), then click the Submit and Sign Up button at the bottom. Enter the name and email addresses of each adult volunteer. Kids under 18 are welcome and need not register, however all minors must be accompanied by an adult or caretaker at all times.
You'll receive a reminder email 2 days before your registered slot. Volunteer slots are limited due to the pandemic, so if your plans change, please adjust your sign-up schedule so that another person(s) can volunteer. Thanks!
On your scheduled volunteer day, please meet the Friends of Morningside Park Volunteer Team Captains at the pond (near 112th Street, inside the Park). Depending on the season, Saturday volunteer activities may include trash pick-up, weeding/gardening, raking, or brush clearing. All needed supplies and instructions will be provided.
NOTE: We will be working in zones to adhere to social-distancing guidelines. A Volunteer Captain will lead each zone.
What do I need to volunteer?
- Garden or work gloves. We have a supply of garden gloves, if needed.
- Clothing suitable for digging in the dirt or collecting trash.
- Water or other hydration. Volunteering is hard work! Stay hydrated. :)
Please email [email protected] We look forward to seeing you in the Park!
