COASTAL PRESERVATION NETWORK is an all-volunteer 501c3 organization in College Point, NY, that is dedicated to restoring and protecting the coastal environment in Northeast Queens, improving local waterfront parks through hands-on action and advocacy, increasing public access to local waters, providing environmental education, and empowering residents to be greener in their daily lives. We focus on MacNeil and Powells Cove parks, two magnificent East River parks in College Point that are havens of active recreation and peaceful enjoyment.
Through environmental workshops, shoreline cleanups, seagrass and oyster plantings, research, parks advocacy, educational presentations and partnerships, Coastal is creating more vibrant waterfronts and parks, reconnecting the public to the coastal ecosystem, building environmental knowledge, protecting our natural resources, and strengthening community service and pride. To help our community through the Covid-19 crisis, we are actively engaged in providing food relief to essential workers and College Point residents, in partnership with A Better College Point, Margaret Loughlin Homes, and the support of local residents, businesses, and elected officials.
