19 days until spring is officially here! That means soon it will be warm enough to enjoy warm weather activities in your nearby park. On Saturday, May 7th, 2011, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation will be hosting it’s annual “Street Games” event in East Harlem. This is where you come in.

The latest major Parks event that GreenTeam participated in was Winter Jam 2011, which took place in the Nethermead in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. Despite the cold, rainy weather, we made history with over 40 volunteers and over 400 pieces of recyclable trash collected- let’s beat our record! We are looking to out-do ourselves.

We are looking for individual volunteers and teams- bring your friends. If you are a community group or non-profit organization based in the Harlems, Upper Manhattan (Washington Heights and Inwood), or the Bronx, here is your opportunity to participate!

More information coming soon…
