Help Clean Up Brant Point Wildlife Sanctuary
BRANT POINT WILDLIFE SANCTUARY CLEAN UP
Saturday, April 10, 10am-1pm ET
With NYC Parks and Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy
Join New York City Audubon, in partnership with New York City Parks and Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, for a morning and afternoon of beautifying the gem that is Brant Point Wildlife Sanctuary. Snacks, water, tools, and gloves all provided!
 
Brant Point Wildlife Sanctuary, a wetland area of Jamaica Bay, was established as a protected area under the Buffer the Bay program, a joint effort by the Trust for Public Land and New York City Audubon. The goal of the late 1980s initiative was to reclaim land around Jamaica Bay in order to protect New York City’s largest and most vital natural marshland. Brant Point Wildlife Sanctuary is an integral part of the Buffer the Bay program: the area is home to dozens of species of birds, several of which are endangered and migratory, making this brief stopover a critical habitat.
