It’s the final weekend of March! Hope all of you Greenpointers had an eventful and satisfying first quarter of the year. If your life has been as erratic as this weather, we hope you find some solace in the vibrancy of our neighborhood — which can definitely be felt through the weekend events. Let’s get started!
Saturday, March 26
Bright and early on Saturday, join in the McCarren Park Dog Run Clean-Up. This initiative is by McCarren Dog Allies and this is their first in-person meet up. The good barista folks from Variety Coffee will be providing coffee for all volunteers.
Also happening at 9 a.m. on Saturday is North Brooklyn Tree Care Day. Sign up with the NYC Parks Department here to help nurture the trees in our neighborhood.
