Event Description

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: THE URBAN CANOPY PARKLET

urbancanopyparklet@gmail.com

www.facebook.com/urbancanopyparklet

Are you around March 10-23? Do you want to get involved with a hands-on project that helps bring a new public space and environmental education experience to one of our city’s most vibrant communities?

Come work with community members and students from the Yale schools of Architecture, Forestry, and others to construct a parklet (a mini-park designed to fit on two parking spots) on Grand Avenue in Fair Haven! A gateway to deeper experiences with urban nature,  The Urban Canopy Parklet, winner of the 2017 New Haven Parklet competition, abstracts the shapes of New Haven's most prominent tree species into beautiful canopies built with recycled wood of former street trees, with signage in English and Spanish. Once complete, the parklet will be hosting weekend workshops and school visits that teach residents about urban ecology.

We will need all the help we can get with various tasks: preparing and planing the wood, drilling and screwing to assemble the wood framing, carrying and transporting building supplies, and putting together planters.

Construction will occur every day March 10-23, in the Fair Haven area of New Haven. We will probably have evening shifts for those who want to volunteer but have daytime commitments.

Whether you are a woodworking pro or someone who wants to lend a free afternoon or a car, we’d be very grateful for your contribution.

If you would like to learn more, please contact urbancanopyparklet@gmail.com to get on our volunteer list.
