City Year School Group Volnteers


On February 23rd, a group of volunteers from City Year School Group helped remove the invasive species, Japanese Knotweed, from Shoelace Park. The volunteers, 19 City Year employees and 70 middle school students, worked in conjunction with the Bronx River Eco Crew. With the combined effort of the two groups, we were able to remove a large amount of the Japanese Knotweed from Shoelace Park.
