Grassland Cleanup Volunteers Needed

The National Park Service and NYCAS are coordinating a cleanup of the grasslands at Floyd Bennett Field this Saturday, March 23rd at 9am. As you may know, Floyd Bennett was used as a staging area for FEMA and other emergency services after Hurricane Sandy. The hundreds of vehicles and thousands of workers using the park did a great job, but as one might expect, all the activity left considerable debris on and around the grasslands. Some cleanup had already begun this week, but there is still much more work to do.

If you or your organization are interested in lending a hand to cleanup Brooklyn's last remaining grassland:

Meet at the Ryan Visitor Center tomorrow (March 23rd) at 9:00am.
Gloves and bags will be supplied.
For those using mass transit, the Q-35 bus stops opposite the Ryan Visitor Center.

Aviator Sports, which is adjacent to the Ryan Visitor Center, has driving directions on their website here.
