Building Up and Breaking Down

Event Overview

Join the Queens Platoon as we partner up again with Coastal Prevention Network to build up on the 28th ave beach. Some of the tasks we will be focusing on are the following: 1. There are steps that leads to the beach that are on their last leg. We need volunteers who will be willing to come out and help rebuild the stairs to make it easier to access the area and avoid serious injuries. 2. There are very large debris that are still on the beach that we would very like to get rid of. We need people to help break it down and take it out of the beach area so we can open up more space for people to use and capitalize on it by building something new there when the weather gets warmer again. 3. There is still some trash we didn’t manage to get to the last time we was out there and was hoping to cover the area that we didn’t get. If you or someone you know is interested in either breaking some stuff, building stuff or both, please sign up below.
