Van Cortlandt is your park and here we offer you a role in supporting it. When you make a membership donation to the Conservancy, your money goes towards outdoor cultural programming, green fields, and well-used trails through the forest.
The Van Cortlandt Park Conservancy recruits interns in its Operations and Events Department throughout the year. We seek intelligent, self–motivated candidates, who are good communicators, and serious workers.
Many aspects of the park can bring back memories of a special time, place or person. Let someone special know how much you appreciate them and the park by making your gift in their name. We’ll let your friend, teacher, parent, coach, spouse, mentor or child know that you have honored them.
VCPC is working hard to make the park, your park, the best it can be. Please help us maintain, beautify and program the park. Become a member, make a donation, dedicate a bench or tree, or even volunteer, everything helps. We and future park users cannot thank you enough!
