Event Details

Help the American Littoral Society Restore Jamaica Bay!

Youth Planting

We need volunteers to plant over 30 acres of salt marsh on Black Wall and Rulers Bar marsh islands.

In addition to improving water quality and protecting the salt marsh, the Marsh Restoration Initiative program preserves migratory stopover and breeding grounds for over 330 species of birds, preserves estuarine nursery and habitat for over 100 species of finfish, and improves the recreational environment for anglers, boaters, and community members. Salt marshes also help protect communities from dangerous tidal storm surges.The health of these marsh islands is critical to the well being of the 20 million people that live and work in this urban region.

Volunteers are needed to plant several acres of marshland. We will be traveling the short distance by boats and planting Spartina plugs.

Please sign up to volunteer! Bring neighbors, friends, families, even groups. We need all the help we can get!

We have 2 days of planting left, to register and for more information, click on the dates:

June 1st, 10 am - 2 pm

June 2nd, 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

The salt marsh, shorelines, and upland areas in Jamaica Bay are disappearing at an estimated rate of 40 to 50 acres per year. Join us in the first ever community-led marsh restoration in a National Park.
