Westchester Parks Foundation engages the public to advocate for and invest in the preservation, conservation, use and enjoyment of the 18,000 acres of parks, trails and open spaces within the Westchester County Parks system.
Each April Westchester Parks Foundation and the Westchester County Parks Department host Pitch In for Parks. It is our largest one-day volunteer program, scheduled around Earth Day every year. Volunteers take on special projects throughout the county parks to help get ready for the peak season. They paint, rake, prepare and plant flower beds, build footbridges and boardwalks in the woods, clear trails and shorelines, monitor biodiveristy, restore wildlife habitats and remove invasive vines from trees. Join in this community effort and help us prepare for spring!
We will be stationed at the Bronx River Reservation right next to the Westchester County Center. Whole Foods Market Westchester will be there as one of our sponsors.
