The tool shed will be built this Summer by local volunteers and will feature a green roof and a sustainable rain barrel. This Lean To Tool Shed will be housed at either the Sherman Creek old gas station site or at the fenced area behind PS5 at Sherman Creek. Please help us spread the word.

Awesome news!!

INTERNATIONAL COASTAL CLEANUP 2011/It's My Park's Day at Sherman Creek

Posted by Webmaster on October 28, 2011 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

On Saturday, October 15, 2011 a dedicated group of volunteers from the Friends of Sherman Creek Conservancy participated in another yearly Coastal Cleanup of the New Sherman Creek Waterfront Park at 203rd Street and 9th Avenue in Northern Manhattan. They removed over 100 lbs of trash, such as plastic bags and bottles, pieces of clothing, and other floatables from the shores of the Harlem River.  They also planted Tulips and Hydrangea bulbs that will flower next Spring at Highbridge Park as part of the It's My Park's Day Fall volunteer cleanup and beautification project. We had the presence of local Assemblyman Guillermo Linares who stopped by to show his support for our worthy cause. This event was made possible by the generous support of the New York Littoral Society, Ocean Conservancy, Partnerships for Parks, First Hispanic Baptist Church of Manhattan's Young Urban Ministry, and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
