Saturday August 2 at 9 a.m.
Fort Tilden Beach
OystercatcherCome join NYC H2O, Audubon and the National Park Service for our volunteer beach cleanup of Fort Tilden beach. This will be in honor of International Coastal Cleanup Day.
Protected shore birds like oystercatchers and piping plovers lay their eggs in the sand so a beach rake machine can’t be used to clean the beach. So, the trash has to be picked up by hand.
Audubon will talk to us about the variety of shore birds that make their home on our beaches. Gloves and garbage bags will be provided. The cleanup will last 1.5 hours.
Van transportation will be provided from Union Square.
(The original date for this event was postponed because of thunderstorms.)
