Event description

Description

Join NYC Audubon and Brooklyn Marine STEM Education Alliance (BMSEA) to help clean up Coney Island Creek at Calvert Vaux Park!

Each summer, debris from excessive beach use washes up on our city's shorelines. This waste can be extremely harmful to urban wildlife like whales, migratory birds, and more. Coney Island Creek used to be filled with oysters which provided a rich habitat for many marine species that have since left the area. The Billion Oyster Project deployed a new oyster reef in the creek and are closely monitoring its impacts on the ecosystem. We will meet at the SW corner of the Calvert Vaux Park Parking Lot.

All equipment is supplied, as well as snacks and water. Please dress for the weather and wear closed toed shoes.
