Coastal Wetlands Tour at Brooklyn Bridge Park

July 23, 2014
6:30 PM

Brooklyn Bridge Park

Directions

Join us for a FREE guided tour of the coastal wetlands at Brooklyn Bridge Park!

Coastal wetlands are considered the "kidneys of the coast" because they capture pollutants before they enter our beaches and bays. They are also a crucial part of the coastal food web and support more than two thirds of all commercially important marine species, and they provide a stopover habitat for migrating shorebirds. Wetlands also play a critical role in making our communities more resilient; marshes offer physical protection to our coastlines from storms by trapping sediments and reducing the erosive force of waves.

Learn more about the importance of wetlands — and get an up close look at how this habitat fits into New York City's shoreline. On Wednesday, July 23, The Nature Conservancy in New York's urban conservation scientist, Lauren Alleman, will lead a guided tour of the coastal wetlands at Brooklyn Bridge Park. This event is free and open to all.
