From Industrial Land to Restored Coastal Habitats in Brooklyn

Janes Walk

Led By Ellen Hartig, Senior Professional Wetland Scientist, NYC Parks

Join us for a virtual tour of NYC Parks coastal habitat restoration sites in Brooklyn. View three completed projects in what had been industrial land use transformed into salt marshes, dunes and coastal shrubland. Find out how we manage habitats for wildlife, recreation, learning, and protection from future sea level rise and other threats. See how we time our visits for tracking horseshoe crabs each spring!
