Join the Friends of Greenwich Point in the restoration of the Holly Grove

Join the Friends of Greenwich Point in the restoration of the Holly Grove on Sunday, April 10, from 1-4. All ages are welcome. (Rescheduled from Sunday, April 3)

The Holly Grove, planted in 1959, was a gift to Greenwich Point by Mr. & Mrs. Kitchel in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary. Twenty-one holly species were planted and while time has seen many of them thrive, time has also taken a toll on the Grove. In celebration of the Friends of Greenwich Point’s 60th anniversary we are working with the Town to restore the Holly Grove. This project seemed fitting as Mrs. Kitchel was instrumental in the formation of the Friends of Greenwich Point (formerly known as the Greenwich Point Committee).  

Phase I of the project is removal of all ground debris (sticks, limbs…) and removal of vines from the existing hollies. We hope that you will join us as we work to complete Phase I.

Please bring work gloves, pruners, loppers and a friend or two.

As the holly grove provides food for several Greenwich Point bird visitors we are also offering a “make your own Pinecone Bird Feeder” station.

Help clean the Holly Grove or stop by to make a bird feeder, either way we hope to see you there.

Please note that due to the Sunday Safe Roads program those arriving to the park after 9 a.m. will be required to walk from the 2nd concession stand parking lot as the road to the Holly Grove will be closed to traffic.

Thank you to the Girl Scouts for volunteering to assist with this project.
