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. The Guardians work to make the Bay, Flushing Creek, the Flushing Bay Promenade, and the World's Fair Marina more accessible and inviting through increasing pedestrian and bicyclist friendly access. This is the public's open space and can be a real jewel! We're working to bring recreational and educational facilities and programs to the Flushing Bay waterfront. Our goal is to ensure the public can make sustainable use of the Bay and surrounding ecosystems. Exposure to Flushing Bay’s waterfront can be transformative and we are building the next generation of New Yorkers committed to protecting the planet.
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.
We stand in solidarity with the M4BL and the protests against systemic racism and police brutality. Our vision of Flushing Waterways is only achievable if we address complex systemic racism that has kept our watershed under-resourced and overlooked.
