Human Impacts Institute presents: Exploring the Environment of the Southside!

Date: Friday, April 20th, 2012

Time: 3pm-6pm

Location: Rodney Park, Rodney St btw South 3rd and South 4th Street, Brooklyn, NY

 

Join the Human Impacts Institute for an evening of street tree stewardship, water quality testing, and creative community re-envisioning.  For tree stewardship, we will be digging up blocks to create more space for our trees and aerating and mulching the beds in and around Rodney Park.  Let’s work together to beautify our park and trees, learn about local resources, and share our ideas for a clean, green Southside together!

 

Free!  All supplies will be provided. All ages are welcome.  Children under the age of 15 must be supervised by an adult.

 

This program is in partnership with El Puente and the Floresta 2012 Tour of the Southside, NYC Councilwoman Diana Reyna’s Office, and thanks to the Open Space Alliance of North Brooklyn!
