Site of the NCA Living Dock, we will be working to further cleanup a small section of shoreline that is crowded by weeds and dumped debris. After completing our North Henry Street Study earlier this year NCA continues to push forward in working with agencies and multiple stakeholders for an ecologically restored area. In meantime we are pursuing small measures to help improve present conditions here. Come see the site, visit the Living Dock and lend a hand!

Since 2014 NCA has been working to clean up, replant and revitalize this once historic bridge crossing turned forgotten street end. We have busy but could use more hands for removing invasive weeds, replanting native pollinators and clearing more paths for people to enjoy a slice of nature within an overwhelmingly industrial urban context.
