Day of Outrage to Save MacNeil Park and Wetlands

October 15, 2016: 2:00PM to 4:00PM
MacNeil Park Queens, NY map

Join the Coastal Preservation Network for a rally and press conference to stop the city DEP’s destructive plan to install a stormwater outfall pipe in the middle of MacNeil Park’s thriving wetlands & oyster reef that we have been restoring for a decade. The polluted water would flow right into the kayak launch – the town’s only free waterfront access point.

Protests will also include the fact that the crumbling seawall/waterfront path reconstruction work hasn’t yet begun. It is years behind schedule. Bids were opened in January; contract still not awarded.
Gather with us to make our voices heard, sign petitions, and get action!
