Several Groups Participate in Spring Volunteer Projects at CURB

It was a busy spring for volunteer groups at CURB, with several projects being completed over the last few months. Here are some of the highlights:

April 27th – Avenues: The World School Community Day (pictured above)

Students and staff from Avenues: The World School joined us for a service project as part of their Community Day. Volunteers assisted with several projects around the Center including repainting our river tanks, organizing our library, painting sizes on the wader boots, and clearing out our pollinator garden.

May 9th – Mastercard’s May Month of Service

Mastercard Volunteers

Volunteers from Mastercard worked with staff on various park projects. These included replacing the fencing in our low marsh area, repairing our waterfront rock erosion wall, and weeding and planting our children’s garden.

May 21st – Eagle Scout Project

Colin and Shed

Scouts from Troop 29 in Yonkers, led by Eagle Scout candidate Colin Wanderman, completed a service project at CURB. The group cleared out overgrown land along the side of the Center and installed a new shed to provide additional storage space for gardening and program materials.

CURB thanks all of these groups for generously volunteering their time and helping out with projects that had been on hold due to the pandemic. For more information about group volunteer events, please contact Outreach Coordinator Jason Muller at
