On Sunday, June 9, Allstate volunteers from the John Lepore Agency in Rockaway Park teamed up with the Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers to participate in the planting of seagrasses for the construction of the salt marsh and forest area in Sunset Cove Park in Broad Channel. "We often take for granted the amazing waterfront with which we have been blessed,” Lepore said. “We are proud to be a part of this effort that will help improve Jamaica Bay as it literally touches where so much wildlife exists and millions of New Yorker's live."

Once completed, this area will be home to a boardwalk and an education center so visitors can learn and understand how vital these marshes are to the overall ecosystem of Jamaica Bay.
