New York City Audubon Society received a $5,669 GCEF grant (and provided $3,367 in matching funds) in 2015 to conduct 6 bird monitoring sessions and host a walk in the fall of 2016 for the Greenpoint public at Monsignor McGolrick Park. These events allowed Greenpoint residents to learn about native plants and their importance to wildlife, as well as encouraged community members to participate in the “Urban Oasis” habitat restoration project at the park – a project created by New York City Audubon Society through a GCEF grant.
