Rockaway Earth Day Shines Light On Environment
The environment came alive last weekend as the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance and the city's Department of Parks and Recreation held the Third Annual Rockaway Earth Day on the boardwalk at Beach 28 Street.
"Where else can you find kids rescuing dolphins off the beach, testing water and planting their own seedlings?" wrote Jeanne Dupont, the executive director of the RWA, about the May 2 event. In this email she added, "More than 500 smiling faces joined forces to help green our planet."
Among those at the event were the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Sebago Canoe Club,
and the FDNY.
