Thank you to the 25 volunteers who helped clean Canarsie Park and Paerdegat Basin shoreline by removing 700 lbs of trash! This included thousands of pieces of food packaging and microplastics washed ashore by the tide. This cleanup helped remove pollutants and protect critical shorebird nest in the saltmarsh habitat.
We’re grateful to all the community members who volunteered including groups from DHL, NYU and BkSWAB. We’d also like to thank our program parnter Partnership for Parks as well as Council Member Narcisse for sponsoring this community stewardship and her team for coming out to help clean!
