Join the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy and New York City Department of Parks & Recreation Stewardship as we celebrate World Wetlands Day on Friday, February 2, 2018! Urban wetlands provide a variety of benefits including improved water quality and storm water retention. They also serve as critical habitat for native wildlife. Volunteer with the Stewardship Team and JBRPC to help protect these important ecosystems on World Wetlands Day! Volunteers will be removing debris from the Seagirt Avenue Wetlands in Far Rockaway, Queens. Volunteers should dress in clothes that can get dirty, close-toed shoes, and warm layers. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring their own water bottles. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.
Space is Limited. Registration is required: https://www.nycgovparks.org/reg/stewardship/4598/register
