May 19th Marsh Planting
Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 9:00 AM (EDT)
For months we have been working on the restoration of two marsh islands in Jamaica Bay known as Ruler's Bar and Black Wall. Those of you who wish to join us will have the privilege of being some of the very few people to participate in the first-ever community-led marsh restoration in a national park! Exciting, right?
May 19th will be the very first planting day open to the public, which makes your attendance even more special. Because this is the first day open to the public, we ask that families with young children choose to sign up for another scehduled planting day. This way we can assure the greatest amount of safety while working out in the field.
Please note, we will be leaving the sign-in area and heading to the marsh via boat. We will have an abundance of safety vests onboard. The trip will take only a few minutes, but may not be comfortable if you are not at least 50% okay with riding in a boat.
Individuals should only sign up if they are certain they will be able to participate.
Thank you again for donating your time and effort in our fight for Jamaica Bay. We can't wait to have you all join us!
