New Orleans City Park is grateful to the staff of Tulane University for once again volunteering in the Park. This annual day of service with Tulane University staff will include 180 volunteers.
Volunteers will be removing invasive tree species on Scout Island and working to improve trails on Scout Island. Scout Island is the perfect place to escape from the city without ever leaving town. Combined with Couturie Forest, the 60-acres are a nature-lover’s haven filled with native trees, scenic waterways, and fascinating wildlife — all in the heart of the New Orleans.Volunteers will also be working on the Grow Dat Youth Farm clearing brush and doing general farm maintenance. The Mission of the Grow Dat Youth Farm is to nurture a diverse group of young leaders through the meaningful work of growing food. On the farm, staff and volunteers work collaboratively to produce healthy food for local residents and to inspire youth and adults to create personal, social, and environmental change in their own communities.
NOTE: Anyone is welcome to volunteer in City Park. If you are interested, please email Earl at Esires@nocp.org.
