Newtown Creek Alliance in partnership with Billion Oyster Project is bringing back Creek Critters, a marine ecology exploration program where people of all ages can drop into the new Queens Landing Boathouse and Environmental Center, to interact with and learn about critters that live in the Newtown Creek!
Critters might include: different fish species, oysters, mussels, snails, crabs, and anything else we can catch.
See you there!
Join NCA for our annual benefit, celebrating Newtown Creek and raising funds to support our vital work advocacy, education, and stewardship work. This year we are thrilled to be celebrating our wonderful partnership with LaGuardia Community College.
For years the professors, students, and faculty of LaGuardia have been key advocates in fighting for a cleaner, more accessible, and more resilient Newtown Creek. Located just a block from the Dutch Kills tributary, the school has partnered with NCA, and a number of other local organizations, to pilot a variety of education, restoration, and planning projects to improve the waterway. The college truly embodies NCA’s mission to Reveal, Restore, and Revitalize Newtown Creek which is why we are honoring them with all three awards this year.
Join us this fall for NCA’s Autumn Saturdays at the Kingsland Wildflowers green roofs! Each Saturday you can come enjoy the roofs, visit our Native Plant Nursery, and purchase native plants to take home with you. On select Saturdays there will also be the opportunity to volunteer with our Greenhouse Gang and help care for the Native Nursery. More info and sign up here.
