Saving Jamaica Bay tells the story of how one community fought the government and overcame Hurricane Sandy to clean up and restore the largest open space in New York City. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon, Saving Jamaica Bay also symbolizes the efforts to preserve urban nature, combat climate change, and invest in our national parks.
After the screening, you will have the opportunity to meet Dan Hendrick, the filmmaker and visionary behind Saving Jamaica Bay.
This screening will be hosted by the Natural Areas Conservancy, the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival, the Science and Resilience Institute at Jamaica Bay, the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, the Washington Square Park Conservancy, and the team behind Saving Jamaica Bay.
This event will be held in Washington Square Park under the arch.
