Help us develop and maintain an urban oasis in Greenpoint's McGolrick Park. We have recently finished planting a quarter-acre native plant garden that will help attract birds, butterflies, and other wildlife to the park. Volunteers are needed for post-planting biodiversity and care/maintenance. Local Greenpoint residents are ideal. If interested, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

For the Birds!

[b]For the Birds![/b]For the Birds!

Training Session: Thursday, September 28, 9:30am-12pm

Audubon New York’s For the Birds! Program is looking for volunteer to help connect NYC students to birds! For the Birds! is an elementary education program that teaches environmental awareness and appreciation of nature through the study of birds. During a 4, 8 or 16 week session, students in grades 2 through 4 learn about their natural environment through classroom lessons, outdoor field trips, and a conservation project designed to improve bird habitat in the local community. For the Birds! exposes students, usually for the first time, to the concept that their neighborhoods provide valuable habitat to birds and other urban wildlife. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jill Agnello, For the Birds! Teacher Naturalist, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
