Open Call for Volunteers! Please join us for a community-led planting and restoration day on Ruler's Bar and Blackwall marsh islands in Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. For the second year, we are teaming up with the Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers to organize a day of planting plugs of spartina alterniflora (marsh grass), repairing fencing and clearing debris as part of our Marsh Restoration Initiative, the first-ever community led marsh restoration project in a National Park.

Gena's planning notes

I am planning to go and bring the kite- Don has also graciously said we could use a 2 person kayak, or two single person kayaks.

Eymund, are you able to bring multiple kites and spools, or do I need to pick these up from someone? I am out of town until Sun morning but could coordinate a pickup then.

I have a junky camera we can use, but another one would be good.

See some of you soon!
