Kingsland Wildflowers is a Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund (GCEF) project committed to expanding natural habitat and green corridors for bird and wildlife populations. The vision, conceived through partnerships with local businesses, community voices and wildlife experts, will provide Greenpoint with living and growing infrastructure to support native New York City wildlife and educational programming focused on sustainable conservation practices and wildlife protection.

2018 marks the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the most powerful and important bird-protection law ever passed.
Over the last century, the law has saved millions of birds from depredatory human activities.
Sadly the rate of extinctions appear to be ever-increasing, as a result of extensive habitat destruction, invasive species, window collisions, predatory cats, and pesticides. As of 2017, over 1,300 bird species are under threat, and a total of 197 are critically endangered—on the brink of extinction.
Year of the Bird is 12 months of storytelling, science, and conservation aimed at heightening public awareness of birds and the importance of protecting these critical species. Together we can champion causes for birds and work towards proven solutions.
