Help Repair the Destruction Left by Hurricane Sandy
Late Sunday night, Hurricane Sandy pummeled the East Coast, triggering a storm surge that inundated the West Side as far east as 10th Avenue and as far north as West 46th Street. As the Hudson’s waters barreled inland, they did not spare Hudson River Park, plants were uprooted, paving stones ripped up, and soil dredged from the lawns and flowerbeds. When the waters quickly receded, they carried back refuse and debris from the damaged city, scattering it throughout Hudson River Park.
Like much of lower Manhattan, Hudson River Park is hurting after Sandy, and can use your help to repair the damage.

Hello Volunteers! Thank you so much for signing up for our Mulch Madness! volunteer event at the Hudson River Park this Saturday November 10th. Please review the information for this event below:
Location: Please report to the Greenwich Village section of Hudson River Park at W. 11th Street. You will find Park staff waiting and ready to receive you. After the check-in process is complete, your group will proceed to mulch the areas directly north and south of Pier 40.
Time: Please report at 10am. We will be wrapping up around 1pm.
What to bring: Please check the weather and dress accordingly. The current weather report shows a sunny day in the high 50’s with a slight chance of rain. Wear layers and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. If you have work gloves of your own, please feel free to bring those although we will be providing work gloves as well. Also, please bring a full water bottle.
What we will be doing: Your efforts will have both an immediate and lasting impact here in the Hudson River Park. The flow and ebb of Hurricane Sandy’s flood waters stripped the Park’s gardens and vegetative spaces bare. You will be part of a work crew restoring topsoil and mulch to plant beds. For the many thousands who use the Park each day, this “re-beautification” will be a strong step forward for the visual restoration of the Park’s grounds. For the plants here in the Park, the soil and mulch addition will provide structure, nutrients, and a covering essential to plant survival over the winter months ahead. Children: Please feel free to bring your children along to help. Hours served during these volunteer events will count towards community service if needed for school.
