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.)

Saturday, April 27, 10am-1pm
With Wild Bird Fund, Linnean Society of New York
Clean up for wildlife! Each winter debris winds up in our waters and washes on our shores. It’s unsightly, polluting, and prevents urban wildlife like migratory birds, diamondback terrapins, and horseshoe crabs from using the beaches for feeding and nesting. Come out on a glorious spring day and join NYC Audubon, Wild Bird Fund, and the Linnaean Society of New York to get our beaches ready for the crowds.
