Wetland Clean up + Costumed Kayak Tour

Friday, October 29, 2021

1:00 p.m.4:00 p.m.

Join the Freshkills Park Alliance for a wetland clean-up at our Kayak Launch site. Following the cleanup, volunteers will have the opportunity to Kayak along Freshkills Park's waterways! This two-mile round-trip paddle is a chance to explore the creeks and shorelines of Freshkills Park and experience the wildlife while the site is closed to the public.  

Halloween is around the corner, so costumes are welcome and encouraged.  

Registration: Each ticket admits 1 car, containing up to 4 participants. During registration, you will be asked about additional participants in your car.

Transportation: By registering for this event, you confirm you will provide your own transportation. Because the site is under construction, all participants must provide their own car that will stay on-site the whole time. Participants may not use a bicycle, taxi or ride-share service.

Gear: Wear a hat and sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or muddy. Please also bring water, a snack, and sunblock.

Technology: Feel free to take photos, but consider carefully before bringing any electronic devices with you as they may possibly get wet, damaged, or dropped during the program.

Restrictions: You will be asked to sign an activity waiver before participating in the program.

Cancellation: This tour will be canceled if registration is too low, or if there is a 60% or greater chance of rain on the day of the event. You will be asked to confirm your registration by email before the tour. As we receive cancellations, names will be added from the waitlist. If you know you will be unable to attend, please cancel your registration by emailing info@freshkillspark.org so we can fill the reservation.
