Event description

Description

Join NYC Audubon, Sadhana: Coalition of Progressive Hindus, Wild Bird Fund, the Linnaean Society of New York and Oceana at North Channel Bridge to take part in a multi-state effort to improve coastline habitat. The North Channel Bridge area, used by species like the American oystercatcher, is also a stone's throw away from the Harbor Heron Island and the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. Help us clear the beach and raise awareness of the importance of coastal areas to birdlife. Limited transportation from Manhattan available.

Please note: those taking the bus from Manhattan will be asked to meet at 9:00am.

The North Channel Bridge Beach Cleanup is part of an annual international effort coordinated in NYS by
the American Littoral Society (http://www.littoralsociety.org). It is a global volunteer effort to cleanup beaches
for the marine life, shore birds, wildlife, and you- the beachgoer. Anyone can participate and it is a great way
to give back and spend time outdoors. No other program in New York does more to improve the coastal environment than the International Coastal Cleanup.

Wear: comfortable clothes and close-toed shoes

Don't forget to bring: Water, lunch, sunscreen, and a hat
