We are working with Van Cortlandt Park Alliance, NYC Parks and the Bronx and Yonkers communities to explore potential improvements to the Northwest Forest section of Van Cortlandt Park with the goal of supporting the restoration of natural habitat, making the park feel safer and more inclusive, and creating a green and vital link between Yonkers and The Bronx.
Will you help us by answering a few questions? Your totally anonymous feedback will help us understand the best design solutions for the park.

The Green Team

The Green Team program hires local teenagers enrolled in the Yonkers Public School system for paid environmental jobs – for many, their first real job. The program focuses on leadership training and a variety of conservation and restoration skills.

Climate Resilience

Together with business, government, and community leaders, we are restoring the Saw Mill River, building the Yonkers Greenway, and reducing heat and flooding risks related to climate change.

Science Barge

There's no place quite like the Science Barge with its wind turbines whirling, solar panels tracking the sun, and greenhouse bursting with hydroponic plant life. Now it features cutting-edge climate change exhibits.

Groundwork Hudson Valley creates sustainable environmental change in urban neighborhoods through community-based partnerships that promote equity, youth leadership, and economic opportunity.
