Natural Areas Tours of Jamaica Bay: 2019 Tour Series
Join NAC Ecologists and JBRPC staff for a bike tour of natural areas along the Jamaica Bay Greenway. Start in Canarsie Park and view the recently restored upland and coastal restoration areas. Continue along the Greenway as you take in views of Jamaica Bay and Canarsie Pol, an uninhabited island with stunning tidal wetlands and maritime forest. Ride on to Canarsie Pier, a prime fishing location and great spot for picnicking. Finally, make your way to the Shirley Chisholm State Park, Brooklyn’s newest and largest state park. Learn about the former Penn and Fountain landfills that make up the park and its recreational amenities, while enjoying its natural areas that local flora and fauna call home.
Bring your own bike! A select number of adult bikes will be available for loan. First come, first served. Registration required.
