Whether it is planting beach grass, cleaning up debris or sprucing up buildings with fresh coats of paint, JBRPC relies on dedicated volunteers like you to protect and enhance Jamaica Bay and the Rockaway parks. With more than 10,000 acres of parkland, there is no shortage of ways to make an impact!

Projects vary and can be geared toward individuals, families or groups. If you would like to get involved, please visit our partners at NYC Parks, the National Park Service and the American Littoral Society, and check back regularly for additional opportunities, including processing beach grass from our Beach Grass Nursery.
