Thinking ahead to spring yet? Well, here’s a glimpse of our May 9 season opener!
We’ll hit the water for the first time next season as part of the great Riverkeeper Sweep!
Here’s our Facebook event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/1637103389849867/
Community groups throughout the estuary will clean our waterways. Plastic debris is carried into the Newtown Creek from streets by combined sewer overflows (http://www.riverkeeper.org/campaigns/stop-polluters/sewage-contamination/cso/) and wind.
We’ll gather at 9AM, paddle the length of the creek (especially the Queens side) by canoe, and then return by 4PM. High water will be shortly after 2PM. We’ll share a celebratory meal afterwards! Perhaps at The Creek and The Cave (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Creek-and-The-Cave/113823948652531)? Where else? 🙂
