Mulchfest in Prospect Park

Join Prospect Park Alliance on two consecutive Saturdays, January 4 and 11, for Mulchfest, an annual citywide event that got its start in Prospect Park in partnership with the Park Slope Civic Council. 

Bring your holiday tree to Prospect Park to be transformed into environment-friendly mulch that you can take home for your own use. Please make sure to remove all decorations from the trees. 

Volunteers are needed to assist those bringing their trees for recycling by removing ornaments and distributing mulch. Register to volunteer today.

Can’t make it out January 4 or 11? December 26 through January 11, the community is welcome to leave holiday trees along the Park perimeter fence near any drop off location. The trees will be collected by staff members and volunteers.

For more information on Mulchfest citywide, visit nyc.gov/parks/mulchfest
