“Do Good, Have Fun” Event Cleans Up Muskrat Cove (234th St)

Do good have fun

Our "Do Good, Have Fun" Clean-Up event with Bud Light was a huge success! On Saturday, August 2, volunteers and Bronx River Alliance staff descended on Muskrat Cove along the Bronx River to make the park shine! Alliance Conservation Crew members taught volunteers how to remove ‪‎invasive species like Japanese Knotweed.‬ Together they cleared large sections of river front which were being chocked out by this rapidly spreading weed. A fresh coat of paint was also placed on the Bronx River Parkway overpass in the park. We can’t forget to mention that these hardworking volunteers collected over 250 pounds of trash!

A big ‪‎thank you‬ to all of our volunteers and to Bud light for sponsoring the event!

You can get invovled with park clean-ups and other restoration projects
