Purpose

Find out what lives in the East River and help clean the shoreline to create a healthy habitat for the variety of species that call it home!


Participants will join volunteers working throughout the city in their local parks on It's My Park! Day to enhance and beautify New York. Experts from the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy and the Coastal Marine Resource Center will use a 30-foot seining net to catch, identify and discuss an amazing array of creatures that live in the East River before releasing them back into the river. The group will then all work together to clear the shoreline of trash and debris.
