The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is a non-profit citizens' organization that has worked for over 30 years to bring Brooklyn Bridge Park to life. We started out as grassroots advocates, bringing together residents, government, and local supporters to transform an abandoned waterfront into the park you see today. Now as the park's lead steward, we ensure that Brooklyn Bridge Park reaches its full potential as a dynamic and vibrant public space for Brooklyn, New York City, and beyond. The Conservancy produces diverse and innovative programming for park visitors and cultivates volunteer and philanthropic support of Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Teens are invited to pitch in at Brooklyn Bridge Park while exploring and learning more about the environment. Teens Interested in & Dedicated to Environmental Sciences (TIDES) complete community service hours through gardening, seining, coastal cleanup, and clearing oyster cages. This program is for teens ages 14 to 18. The program runs for eight sessions (seven Saturdays and one Sunday), from 9:00 a.m. to nooon, from September to October.

  • Previous horticulture and volunteer experience appreciated, but not required
