We help improve Brookdale Park through landscape restoration, volunteerism and advocacy.


Established in 1928 and designed by the world renowned Olmsted Firm, Brookdale Park's historic landscape is rapidly deteriorating. We aim to improve and maintain the park's natural beauty through ongoing restoration projects and volunteer activities. Our advocacy efforts intend to promote park stewardship, wildlife appreciation and environmental awareness for all ages along with community outreach to better guide capital improvement projects.
We cannot achieve these goals alone. We need your help.


Thursdays @ 10am
