DATE CHANGE!! Alley Creek Salt Marsh Restoration

Help the NYC Parks Stewardship Team and the Natural Areas Conservancy restore a vital and dynamic urban resource –the salt marshes of Alley Creek! Volunteers will place logs made out of rolled coconut fiber, or coir logs, to shrink expanding tidal pools and restore historic salt marsh for habitat. The coir logs will create a temporary boundary to hold clean sand in place for new salt marsh plants. This work will help conserve the longevity of the Alley Creek salt marsh, for birds, crabs, mussels and other wildlife that rely on this vibrant ecosystem to live! Due to the physical nature of this project, volunteers must be 18 and older. Waders will be provided. Registration is required.

Date is subject to change depending on weather conditions.
