Happy New Year! We are looking forward to 2017 as we have lots of exciting events and projects planned for the year.
Throughout 2017, the Friends of Van Cortlandt Park will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary of Bringing Youth, Community & Nature Together in Van Cortlandt Park. To celebrate, we will be hosting special events throughout the year which will begin to announce soon.
In addition to our anniversary, we have several exciting projects planned including a restoration project for the Grand Central Stones and the area around them (pictured below), trail restoration projects throughout the Park including the eastern end of the John Muir Trail, continuation of our water quality monitoring of Tibbetts Brook and Van Cortlandt Lake on a biweekly basis and advocating for Daylighting Tibbetts Brook. This is all while continuing our environmental education programs, volunteer days, youth internships and community hikes that we have been offering for years now.
2017 is going to be a great year for the Friends of Van Cortlandt Park and we hope you will join us as celebrate our 25th Anniversary. One way to help support our 2017 efforts is by becoming a Bronx Pass Member. Great parks require strong communities and FVCP has always been built upon the support of its hundreds of members and thousands of volunteers. In recognition of this, FVCP has created a new, one-year Bronx Pass Membership that is designed to both (1) help educate our most dedicated members so they can become strong advocates for the Park and (2) recognize and thank you for your commitment.
Hope to see you in the Park!
Christina and all of your Friends at the Friends of VCP
