Not-so-Spooky Daffodil Planting @ Freshkills Park Visitor Center
Join the Freshkills Park Alliance for a not-so-spooky clean up at our Visitor center. Help us lay our garden beds to rest by removing invasive species and planting Daffodil bulbs for the Daffodil project at our visitor center. NY4P’s Daffodil Project is the largest volunteer effort in NYC history and living memorial in remembrance of the victims of 9/11. Started in the spring following 9/11, the Daffodil Project is now in its 20th year.
