Save the date for our first event of 2015 -
The Riverkeeper Sweep!!
...A coastal wetlands cleanup in College Point/malba

Saturday, May 9, from 9 am 'til Noon
Where: Powell's Cove Park, in College Point/Malba, Queens

Bring the family and join Coastal as we clean up the waterfront. So much debris gets caught in the marsh grass and will stay there without your help!!!

Please bring a non-perishable food item to support St. Fidelis Food Pantry and serve local families in need. 

Our cleanup site is extremely mucky. Tall waterproof boots, or old sneakers, are best.
No bathrooms on site.

Powell's Cove Park is bounded by 11th Ave & 130th St, to 138th st. 

Enter park via dirt path on 137th st. and 11th ave. and proceed to shoreline

From the east:  Take 14th ave. west, turn right at 137th st., drive til 11th ave. (park).
From the west: Take 14th ave. east, turn left at 137th st., drive til 11th ave. (park).

Special thanks to our partners: NYC Parks Dept., Riverkeeper, Inc.

Coastal Preservation Network is a not-for-profit organization in College Point, NY, that is dedicated to restoring the East River shoreline environment in Northeast Queens, increasing public access to local waters, improving local parks and empowering community members to be greener in their daily lives. 

Through environmental workshops, free kayaking events, shoreline cleanups and plantings, park improvement projects and community advocacy, we are together creating more vibrant waterfronts and parks, reconnecting the public to the waters that surround them, and strengthening community pride and service. 

Our main areas of focus are two New York City parks:  MacNeil Park, known by long-time residents as Chisholm's, and Powells Cove Park. Both of these riverfront jewels are cared for by the city Department of Parks and Recreation, and benefit from the generous assistance of Coastal Preservation Network volunteers.
