Newtown Creek Alliance is Looking for Volunteers this weekend
Didn’t Catch the match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor? No worries, you can have a knockout of your own this weekend! Newtown Creek Alliance is looking for volunteers to help with its Knotweed Knockout at Penny Bridge.
A continuation of our cleanup work at the Penny Bridge site, we are looking for volunteers to help us with weeding and path-making. The vicious Japanese Knotweed, along with other weeds are overtaking portions of the site and we will focus heavily on removing the plant from certain areas for path-making and planting of native pollinator species. Gloves, shovels, trash bags and all other needed materials will be provided.
Saturday, September 9th
Sunday, September 10th
11am to 3pm
Location: Where Meeker Avenue dead ends at Newtown Creek (Greenpoint)
