SAVE THE DATE – NOVEMBER 27th
Help us “Stop The Invasion” at Tibbetts Brook Park Lake!
After a successful #GivingTuesday last year, we understand how critical it is to have the support of our communities to bring about real change. This year, we are looking to raise funds to remove the invasive species Water Chestnut (trapa natans) that has spread through all ten acres of Tibbetts Brook Park Lake, located in Yonkers NY… and we need your help!
Tibbetts Brook Park serves over 100,000 community members annually and in years past the lake was used for boating, fishing and other recreational activities, but is currently inaccessible. This park is critically important to the community as Yonkers, the 4th largest city in New York State, affords little green space to its many residents. Additionally, a significant number of Yonkers and surrounding area residents live in apartments, with no backyard areas – therefore the parks and waterways serve an important role in this area.
Join us this #GivingTuesday to help bring new life into this community treasure.
With your support we will use a Mechanical Harvester to begin the process of providing clean water for the return of native species, the use of the lake for recreation, and overall enhancement to the quality of life for over 100,000 community members.
