Plumb Beach is an important part of Jamaica Bay and is proximate to its wetlands. Optional bus transportation to Plumb Beach will be provided from Union Square in Manhattan (space is limited) - the bus will depart at 9am and will return to Union Square after the cleanup. Registration is required - please sign up here.
Naturalist Mickey Cohen will lead a hands-on seining net adventure to finish off the clean-up at 12 noon. We'll see close-up some of the creatures that live in Jamaica Bay that we help protect from beach garbage. Presented by NYC H2O, the National Park Service, and the City Parks Foundation.
