520 Shoreline Tour
May 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join the Randall’s Island Park Alliance and NYC Department of Planning for an informative and interactive tour along part of the island’s 4.5 miles of coastline. The tour will explore the potential of a brand-new shoreline project to improve coastal resiliency, public access, and recreation along the Harlem River and finish in the beautifully restored Little Hell Gate Salt Marsh. We will delve into the history, ecology, and future of Randall’s Island Park shorelines and community stewardship’s role in helping support a healthy, resilient, and accessible waterfront. Throughout the tour, water quality samples will be taken and we will explore how community stewardship of our coastal resources occurs on the island.
