Calling All Volunteers for Park Clean Up.

Just walking around our neighborhood you can imagine what parks might look like with the fallen trees and whatnot.  Cobble Hill Park above had some fallen trees and branches as you can see above.  Brooklyn Bridge Park got hit pretty hard, they were under three feet of water, and could use your help.  So, if you are home from work, as most of you are, and would like to help out the info is below.

Wed October 31 | 9 am - 12 pm and 2 pm - 5 pm
Volunteers, please join us as we begin our Hurricane Clean Up. We will concentrate our efforts on the perimeters of the park, cleaning up debris left over from flood waters. Work will take place near Main Street from 9am-12pm and on Pier 6 from 2-5pm. Wear water-resistant shoes and clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.

If you have brooms, rakes, and gloves, please bring them. While we have extras, we're hoping that eager volunteers outnumber our current supplies!

Please rsvp to sward@brooklynbridgepark.org. And stay tuned for additional clean up opportunities in the coming days and weeks.
