    If you want to put a little actual labor into your holiday you can join other nature lovers as they work to beautify two areas in the park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Prospect Park Alliance has been hosting volunteer workdays every Monday over the summer and they continue through September 30. Volunteers pitch in with a variety of activities from trash pickup to raking.

    All events take place on Monday, September 2 in Prospect Park. To get all the time and location details visit the event page here.
