Join United By Blue , Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy , and the Natural Areas Conservancy for a cleanup of Motts Basin, part of Jamaica Bay Park!
As part of Jamaica Bay Park, Motts Basin is part of an 18,000 acre wetland estuary that is home to hundreds of species of migratory birds, fish, and insects. Even though the park is a largely untouched natural area, Motts Basin still captures trash and litter that flows in from surrounding rivers. This trash can be detrimental to the local ecosystems and/or flow into the Atlantic to contribute to ocean plastic issues. Help us remove this trash from the wetlands so that the people, animals, and plants that use and love this park can continue to do so!
United By Blue will provide all cleanup supplies, snacks, and water. Join us for cleanup games, prize giveaways, and a day enjoying and caring for Motts Basin!
United By Blue thanks Zipcar for its transportation support during the 2018 cleanup season.
