Join us on Saturday, April 18th from 10am-3pm for a marsh/beach/dune cleanup and planting at Plum Beach, Jamaica Bay. Volunteers needed to help remove floatable debris and plant native coastal plants ( beach plum, red cedar, pitch pine, American beachgrass ) at this National Park Service site.

Meet 10am at the parking lot just off the eastbound lane of the Belt Parkway between Knapp St. ( exit 9) and Flatbush Avenue ( exit 11 ). Bring lunch and old clothes, shoes, etc. We will provide water, bags, gloves, tools, plants and free investment advice.
