We have launched a 2021 volunteer program, together with our partners at the National Park Service at Gateway National Recreation Area. We have over 50 volunteers connecting with beachgoers daily at Fort Tilden, Jacob Riis and Breezy Point Tip about nesting Plovers on our beaches. You can visit us on weekends at our location at Riis Park Beach Bazaar.
We are currently connecting with schools and educators all along the Rockaway Peninsula. Local schools are doing fantastic work in environmental education and we look forward to being a partner in their efforts. If you would like to work with us, please drop us a line.
We are an unwavering voice for Piping Plovers and other nesting shorebirds as residents of the Rockaways, Queens and NYC. We are looking to work with elected officials and agencies alike, to make sure we are doing all we can to protect these magnificent birds. If you are a NYC elected official, or work for one, please reach out to us!
We showcase information about the Piping Plover and other at-risk shorebirds. We seek to engage the public with photography and up-to-date scientific information about Piping Plovers.
We will soon launch a local Piping Plover partnership for businesses and organizations in the Rockaways. If you are a local business and want to join our efforts, please reach out to us.
