Alley Creek Salt Marsh Planting

Saturday, June 10, 2017

9:00 a.m.1:00 p.m.

Help the NYC Parks Stewardship Team and the Natural Areas Conservancy restore a vital and dynamic urban resource—the salt marshes of Alley Creek!

We need your help to plant native grasses at the site to help restore the degraded marsh and improve its capacity to support fish and other wildlife. Please come with work boots or sturdy shoes and long pants. Participants will need to walk up to ¼ mile over uneven terrain to access the site, but will be rewarded with a special opportunity to experience Alley Creek’s interior salt marshes.

Please note: Registration is required. Please register here.
