Join the NYC Audubon, Wild Bird Fund, and the Linnaean Society of New York to clean up Plumb Beach!

Plumb Beach – located in Gateway National Recreation Area – is a New York City beach rich in wildlife. It is used by humans and a variety of wildlife species, such as migratory birds, diamondback terrapins, and horseshoe crabs, for nesting, feeding, and habitat. Unfortunately, each winter there is debris that winds up in the waters and shores of this beach.

Help us clear Plumb beach of debris harmful to wildlife and learn about the importance of having a clean coastal area for wildlife!

All equipment is supplied, plus snacks and water. Transportation via bus from NYC Audubon’s Manhattan office is available for a limited number of volunteers; advanced registration is required. For more information, email Danielle Sherman at dsherman@nycaudubon.org

Note: This Event will happen, RAIN OR SHINE!

What to Wear:

  • Comfortable clothing – weather appropriate
  • Closed-toed shoes
  • Sunscreen and shades are encouraged if it is sunny out
