The Irvington Green Policy Task Force (GPTF) in collaboration with the Village of Irvington, the Pollinator Pathway Project, the O’Hara Nature Center, Irvington Estates, the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, and the Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct are pleased to invite you to a wonderful community event as a part of the Earth Day weekend: 

Celebrate Trails Day on the OCA & Help Create a Pollinator Garden

Date: Saturday, April 23, 2022

Time: 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.

EVERYONE WELCOME – for all or part of the time

Calling all nature lovers, walkers, bikers of the OLD CROTON AQUEDUCT TRAIL to help! 

  • Participate in the creation of a pollinator garden and learn from an expert on how to build one at home.
  • Remove non-native invasive plants (lop, pull & dig them up).
  • Clean up litter.

Parking:  MSS parking lot and on Main Street (up to 2 hours)

Work area: On the trail between the ventilator tower and West Clinton Ave.

Perks:  Helping protect biodiversity by building a pollinator garden and by removing non-native invasive plants; freeing trees of invasive vines so that they can breathe and keep doing the critical work of capturing carbon dioxide; getting some fresh air!
