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.
In 2019, the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, the American Littoral Society and NYC Parks need your help to plant 100,000 marsh grasses to restore these vital wetlands.
If your corporate group is interested in joining us as Jamaica Bay MVPs, please visit our Corporate Volunteer and Sponsorship page and note Jamaica Bay MVP in your sponsorship level selection.
