Third Annual Beach Clean Up!

September 16, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • This event has passed.

Join the NYC Audubon, Wild Bird Fund, and the Linnaean Society of New York for a Beach Clean-Up!

North Channel Bridge is a New York City beach rich in wildlife. It is used by humans and a variety of bird species like the American Oystercatcher and is also a stone’s through from Harbor Heron Island and Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge.

The North Channel Bridge Beach Clean-Up is a local offshoot of the global volunteer movement to clean up beaches for marine life, shorebirds, and you, the beach goer. This annual international effort is coordinated in NYS by the American Littoral Society. Anyone can participate, and it’s a great way both to give back and spend time outdoors. No other program in New York does more to improve the coastal environment.

Help us clear North Channel Bridge of debris harmful to wildlife and learn about the importance of having a clean coastal area for birds!
