Become a Jamaica Bay Marsh Volunteer Planter (MVP) this summer and support critical habitat restoration in Jamaica Bay. As a Jamaica Bay MVP, you are helping restore Jamaica Bay’s tidal salt marshes, which are disappearing at an alarming rate up to 40 acres per year. Jamaica Bay’s marshes provide important habitat and nesting grounds for migratory bird species and other wildlife, while also protecting our vulnerable shorelines from erosion and storm surge.
Join the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, the American Littoral Society, and the Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers, and NYC Parks to plant marsh grasses in Sunset Cove! Register via NYC Parks below:
