Spring Cleaning: Wetland Clean Up + Kayak Tour
Join the Freshkills Park Alliance for a wetland clean up at our Kayak Launch site. Following the clean up volunteers will have the opportunity to Kayak along Freshkills Park’s waterways! This two mile round-trip paddle is a chance to explore the creeks and shorelines of Freshkills Park and experience the wildlife while the site is closed to the public.
Your ticket admits 1 car. Due to ongoing construction at the Freshkills site, all participants must provide their own car that will stay on-site the whole time. Participants may not use a bicycle, taxi or ride-share service. Each ticket holder may bring up to 4 additional guests in their car. During registration you will be asked about additional participants in your car. Due to limited reservations, carpooling with friends and family is encouraged.
Location provided with confirmation email: We will meet and caravan onto the Freshkills Park site together.
Gear: Wear sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet or muddy. Wear clothes that can get wet, and avoid heavy fabric like cotton and jeans. Please also bring water and sunblock. Life jackets will be provided and are required during the tour.
Technology: Feel free to take photos, but consider carefully before bringing any electronic devices with you as they may possibly get wet, damaged, or dropped during the program.
Restrictions: You will be asked to sign an activity waiver before participating in the program. Participants must be Ages 16+
Cancellation: This event will be canceled if registration is too low, or if there is a 60% or greater chance of rain on the day of the event. You will be asked to confirm your registration by email before the event. As we receive cancellations, names will be added from the waitlist. If you know you will be unable to attend, please cancel your registration by email so we can fill the reservation. email@example.com
