Floyd Bennett grassland cleanup 3/23

Subject: Grassland Cleanup Volunteers Needed
Date: Fri Mar 22 2013 10:54 am
From: citybirder AT 
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:
