Join the American Littoral Society’s Northeast Chapter, NYC Parks and NYC Audubon to help restore a saltwater marsh in Sunset Cove Park. Volunteers will be planting marsh grass, so please dress in clothes that can get dirty and close-toed shoes. We also encourage volunteers to bring their own water bottles.

Space is limited and registration is required. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.

Urban wetlands provide a variety of benefits including improved water quality and storm water retention. They also serve as critical habitat for native wildlife.
