To form a committed group that advocate for better land management that focuses on the conservation of the land surrounding Mosholu Parkway, to keep it from being over used and misused and stop the spreading erosion, fallen trees, vandalism and litter before it becomes a wasteland.
A Friends member is actively attending a fellowship program under Parks and Recreation which ends in July of 2013.
Friends received a grant of $1,200 for brochures, tee-shirts, plants and help with the 501 (c) (3) filing.
Two young Yoshino trees made it through the cold winter and are flowering for April 2013.
Projects varies from awareness events, fundraising, taking care of trees in and around the Parkway, cleaning up debris, watering during dry spells, planting bulbs in the fall for the spring, weeding garden areas, working on the soil to stop erosion, creating landscape gardens to beautify the area, make signs that deter behavior that harm the land and much more!
Until a 501 (c) (3) is established donations received will be accepted at the moment by City Parks Foundation, our fiscal sponser on Friends behalf. Donations go directly into projects that help with conservation and beautifying our Mosholu Parkway terrains.
To send donations contact us for further instructions.

Our latest project involves multi-tasking two separate issues.
Our first issue is getting this non-profit off the ground and established.
Our second is the daily hands on of watering the young plants of last year, the pick-up of debris in the area, the planning of our next garden project and documenting all the erosion we have throughout the parkland as well as taking inventory of what we have and we we need in terms of landscape materials.
