We have a very special treat for volunteers at noon.
Former NYBTA Teacher Of The Year awardee naturalist Mickey Cohen will lead a hands-on seining net adventure to finish off the clean-up. We'll see close-up some of the creatures that live in Jamaica Bay that we help protect from beach garbage. Plumb Beach is an important part of Jamaica Bay and is proximate to its wetlands.
