NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- The New Rochelle Parks and Recreation Department will be sponsoring a new Invasive Vine Removal program on Sunday, March 22.

It will be held at Ward Acres Park, at the corner of Broadfield and Quaker Ridge Road between noon and 3 p.m.  No prior experience necessary.

The program begins with a formal training workshop from noon to 1 p.m. led by Master Gardener and Task Committee Coordinator Bob DelTorto, followed by vine removal from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. led by Task Force leaders Julie Larkin and Rob Feuer.

All tools and safety equipment will be provided by the New Rochelle Parks and Recreation Department. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. A second vine removal event is scheduled for Sunday, April 19, at the same location.

This is a great volunteer opportunity for students looking for community service, and for anyone who just wants to lend a hand.
