Jane’s Walk: Exploring the Wetlands at Alley Pond Park

The salt marshes of Alley Creek in northeast Queens have experienced many changes since Jane Jacob’s time, and one section is even the former site of an amusement park! We’re working to restore these vital areas, which are an important habitat for migratory shorebirds, horseshoe crabs, and many more native animals and plants. Join the Natural Areas Conservancy as we tour the landscape and discuss our plans for restoration.

The Queens County Bird Club will also provide an introduction to the diverse birds that use the marsh.

The tour will begin at the Alley Pond Environmental Center (APEC). We will walk north of Northern Boulevard to visit future restoration sites along the outer shore of Alley Creek. Join us on the marsh to learn about our plans to preserve the critical habitat and other ecological benefits that Alley Creek provides!

This event is free and open to the public. Please be prepared with comfortable shoes that can get wet and dirty, appropriate outdoor attire, and water if needed. A portion of this walk will involve uneven terrain; may not be suitable for the mobility-impaired.
