South Brooklyn residents are lucky to live near one of the Northeast’s best bird-watching locales – Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. This weekend, NYC Audubon guides Don Riepe and Mickey Cohen are leading passengers of the Golden Sunshine around the backwater marshes near JFK Airport to learn about the history, ecology, and wildlife of the bay. See nesting peregrine falcon, osprey, egrets, shorebirds, and waterfowl. Includes wine and cheese, fruit, drinks, and snacks.

When: Saturday, June 20th from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Where: Golden Sunshine, departing from Pier 2 in Sheepshead Bay
