Randall's Island Tour and Community Service
Join us to volunteer alongside the RIPA team to remove unwanted debris from the marsh and wetlands, helping to preserve this unique piece of land in the middle of New York! Afterwards, we will enjoy a guided tour of the island, led by an environmental expert to learn more about the history of the island and the importance of maintaining its natural areas.
If you haven't visited Randall's Island, this is a perfect opportunity to explore the island and give back! The fee to participate is $10.

Time: 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Place: Randall's Island, New York City
