Description

NYWEA Metropolitan Chapter Members and Friends:

The NYWEA Metropolitan Chapter Environmental Science Committee would like to invite you to join us a 08:45 am on Thursday June 29, 2017 for the Jamaica Bay Kayak Trip where we will be guided on an excursion through the Jamaica Bay Gateway National Recreation Area by a crew of park rangers who will provide instruction, guidance, information and insights about the flora, fauna and history of the site.

The meeting location address for the Seaplane Kayak Launch is just north of 50 Aviation Road, Brooklyn, NY 11234. The Kayak launch site is along the waters edge to the north and east of the Historic Air Restoration Project structure. As shown on the following map, the group will meet at the Seaplane Ramp on Floyd Bennett Field at 8:30 am. It is located on the East side of the Floyd Bennett field, behind Hangar B. The purple line path on the map is the driving route to the kayak launch site. Public transport arrivals from the Q35 bus should get off at the Ryan Visitors Center stop on Flatbush Avenue, and can walk ~ 1 mile to the launch site.

Following the guided excursion there will be an optional lunch at the Low Tide Bar 97-01 Shore Front Parkway, Far Rockaway, NY. (Note: Lunch is not included in the price of this event)
