Love the beach? So do nesting piping plovers. These tiny shorebirds fly over 700 miles to nest at Rockaway Beach every year. Meet the team from NYC Parks that monitors this endangered species and other nesting shorebirds. Then enjoy a family friendly, self-guided scavenger hunt and learn more about how we can all share the beach. Prizes for all participants.
