The Guardians of Flushing Bay is a grassroots coalition of human-powered boaters, environmental enthusiasts and community members advocating for a healthy and equitably accessible Flushing Bay. Through our grassroots organizing and waterfront programming, we aim to foster a thriving collective where our watershed communities can steward the water and each other.
NYC ranks #1 in raw sewage pollution in the country. More than 2 billion gallons of sewage goes into the Bay each year. Learn more about NYC sewage and stormwater issues with Riverkeeper's Cut the Crap Campaign.
