The Sierra Club’s Atlantic Chapter joined the Staten Island Coalition for Wetlands and Forests, in appealing to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the New York City government to reverse their decisions to permit the project to develop the Graniteville Wetlands. and to save this species-rich wetland until it can be protected as a New York City park.
It is dangerously naïve to think New York will not have more destructive storms. New York City needs to preserve and enhance all its wetlands areas.
The Coalition for Wetlands and Forests hosts various events including fundraisers, educational forums, and walks through the wetland. Our next event will be an educational forum called Race, Class, and Climate Change. It is currently postponed due to covid-19. Please check back in the future to learn more about that event.
