Description

THE NATURAL AREAS CONSERVANCY PRESENTS:

Birding in Marine Park, Brooklyn with New York City Audubon

Saturday, August 24, from 8:30am - 10:30am

Join the Natural Areas Conservancy and New York City Audubon for a birding expedition in Marine Park in Brooklyn. Led by Mike Yuan, a New York City Audubon board member and avid Brooklyn birder, this two-hour event will cover the basics of birding and expose participants to some of Brooklyn's most exciting wildlife, shorebirds! We'll explore the park's varied natural areas including its forests, marshlands, and shoreline.

Over the last four years, the Natural Areas Conservancy, along with its partner organizations, has worked to improve Marine Park’s trails and habitat, making major strides to enrich the health of the park’s 133 acres of natural areas. Through plantings, invasive plant removal, formally defining a loop trail, installing trail markers, and adding new maps to the NYC Parks website, Marine Park has become more accessible to visitors and provides new recreational opportunities on the shore of Jamaica Bay.

About this Event
This event is for beginner and experienced birders alike. Please bring your own binoculars. It's free of charge and registration is required. An extremely limited number of binoculars will be available if needed.

Please meet at 8:30am (low tide) at Marine Park's Salt Marsh Nature Center. The event will last approximately two hours. Please wear closed toe shoes, be prepared for mud, and bring enough water to stay hydrated. We also recommend wearing sunscreen and bug repellant.

This event was made possible through support to the Natural Areas Conservancy from Con Edison.
