Ready to roll up your sleeves and help improve or clean up sites important for birds? Join NYC Audubon for a morning or afternoon and lend a hand as we plant native trees and shrubs, clear out invasive plants, or clean up our beaches for horseshoe crabs and shorebirds. We’ll provide the tools and training, you provide the muscle! No training required and all ages are welcome. (Children must be supervised by an adult.)
