FAQ: Why are our registration fees going to support Friends of Inwood Hill Park?

Part of Shorewalkers’ mission is the preservation of New York City’s waterfront. Inwood Hill Park at the northern tip of Manhattan is a critical part of that waterfront as well as the midpoint lunch stop on the Great Saunter route. The park also has the last natural forest and salt march in Manhattan and is situated on the Shorakapok Preserve in Lenapehoking, the ancestral home of the Lenape.

We are proud to make our annual Great Saunter Fall Challenge donation to the Friends of Inwood Hill Park, who are stewards of this important land and work to unite members of the Inwood community. The funds will be earmarked for the maintenance of the park’s many trails.
