The Stacks – Stacking Up with SCA and Mission Continues
by: Ethan Whinston
Take a moment as we check in with the latest action out of our Queens Chapter of The Stacks!
On January 18, members of the Queens chapter of The Stacks participated in a Martin Luther King Day event run by the Student Conservation Association. The Queens Stack participated with a contingent from The Mission Continues. The event was a restoration of historic St. Nicholas Park in Harlem.
The SCA has made an annual event of restoring parks in New York City. The Mission Continues contingent (including the group from Stack-Up) was assigned the task of cleaning debris off of one of the paths and clearing out drainage culverts next to the path. After finishing, the group headed to Dinosaur Barbecue on the West side of Manhattan for lunch.
The Queens Stack is hoping to participate in more events with the Mission Continues and to include TMC in some of their events.
