Do you want to spend a Saturday on Governor’s Island? Are you passionate about the New York – New Jersey Harbor and the role it has in our city’s health? Do you just want to soak up some sun and be a part of one of the free activities that New York City summers are famous for? Then we have just the project for you!
Sign up now to volunteer at the 5th annual City of Water Day on July 14th. This exciting event, presented by the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance, is dedicated to all of New York City’s waterfront activities. Up to 25,000 people are expected to migrate to Governor’s Island and Liberty State Park for the day to learn more about our waterways and enjoy the day’s festivities.
From port commerce to water recreation, City of Water Day highlights the importance of protecting one of our city’s most precious resources. Volunteers can choose from activities like greeting visitors upon arrival, helping set up and break down the booths and equipment for the day, and organizing family activities. With the wide range of activities, there is something that everyone can enjoy and fit into their schedule. A free lunch is also provided on the day of the event. We are still looking for volunteers for almost every shift, so if you are interested in volunteering, check out the list of shifts that still need your help!
