Cleanup at Plumb Beach!
May 19 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join NYC H2O and the National Park Service for a volunteer cleanup at Plumb Beach. Plumb Beach is part of Gateway National Recreation Area, and is located 3 miles east of Coney Island on Jamaica Bay. Its beautiful and diverse scenery contains precious marine habitat as well as salt marsh.
The cleanup will run from 10am to 12pm. Lunch will be served for all volunteers at noon. At 12:30pm, we have a very special treat for volunteers. Naturalists Clay & Seth Wollney will lead a hands-on seining net adventure. We’ll get to see close-up some of the creatures that live in Jamaica Bay!
Optional bus transportation to Plumb Beach will be provided from Union Square in Manhattan (space is limited). The bus will depart at 9am and will return to Union Square after the ecology lesson.
