Join NYC Parks Stewardship as we celebrate World Wetlands Day! Urban wetlands provide a variety of benefits including improved water quality and storm water retention. They also serve as critical habitat for native wildlife.

Volunteer with the Stewardship Team to help protect these important ecosystems on World Wetlands Day! Volunteers will be removing debris from the Seagirt Avenue Wetlands in Far Rockaway.

Volunteers should dress in clothes that can get dirty, close-toed shoes, and warm layers. They are also encouraged to bring their own water bottles. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.

Please note: Space is Limited. Registration is required.
