Come and celebrate Jamaica Bay while contributing to the efforts to protect it!

This fundraiser to help complete the first-ever feature documentary film on Jamaica Bay will be held at the VW Dome 2, MoMA Ps1’s new temporary geodesic dome in Rockaway Beach.

Jamaica Bay is along the Atlantic Flyway and is home to a vibrant ecosystem that includes more than 325 species of bird and 100 types of fish. The bay’s health has been seriously compromised by development, sewage pollution, dredging, and other stressors, but is making a comeback. Funds raised will help complete the film and raise awareness of this precious natural resource. Meet the filmmakers, get a sneak peek at the trailer, and enjoy music, local food, and a great time with the Jamaica Bay family.

Suggested donation levels are $50, $100 and $250, but all are welcome – please contribute what you can.

We are proud to have Queens Council on the Arts support for this effort.
