New York Bay Cleanup
Mar 24 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

United by Blue is teaming up with the National Parks Service for a cleanup of the New York Bay at Fort Wadsworth!

Overlooking the New York Bay, Fort Wadsworth stands firmly on the northeastern shore of Staten Island. Facing the modern and bustling Verrazano Bridge, the fort and surrounding campus, now part of Gateway National Recreation Area, provide  a contrasting glimpse into early United States history and the protection of the harbor. The New York Bay connects the Hudson River to the Atlantic Ocean, and is considered one of the largest natural harbors in the world. The waters and shoreline offer a diverse ecosystem for sea mammals, fish, and migratory birds. Unfortunately, due to the urbanization of the surrounding area, dumped litter and storm-water debris get washed on shore, and threaten the health of the water. Please join United by Blue and National Parks Service as we tackle the trash, and restore our historical New York Bay at Fort Wadsworth! 


After the cleanup, our friends at  Luke’s Lobster will provide a delicious lunch to all volunteers and the opportunity to learn more about sustainable seafood. Post-lunch, National Parks Service will be offering a free guided tour of Ft. Wadsworth for all volunteers, starting at 1 pm

Mar 24 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with a little help from Stephen Sondheim in Into the Woods, an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
