About this event

Word Up is a community trail maintainer in partnership with the NYC Park's Department's Super Steward Program. In 2021, we adopted the southern Old Croton Aqueduct Trail.

Volunteers will identify and remove garbage in heavily-trafficked areas of the park. Tools (grabbers, trashbags, and gloves) will be provided. Please wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and dress for the weather. Bring water and a snack if you wish! Walking will be on paved and un-paved forest trail.


When: Saturday, March 25th, 11am-1pm (Every last Saturday of the Month)

Where: Highbridge Park, Old Croton Aqueduct Trail

Meeting at: Word Up Community Bookshop/Librería Comunitaria


Debris (garbage and recycling) we may encounter and pick up: 

  • Plastic and glass bottles
  • snack wrappers, plastic bags, other soft plastic wrappers
  • used needles, broken glass, and other sharp objects***
  • old clothing, left behind devices, broken umbrellas, etc. 

** With the help of On Point NYC/NYHRE, Word Up has trained volunteers to pick up sharp objects such as needles and broken glass. A previously trained volunteer will be at this clean up to assist with this sort of debris.
