The North Shore Audubon Society will hold its monthly program on Tuesday, March 
27, 2018, from 7pm to 9pm, at the Manhasset Public Library, 30 Onderdonk 
Avenue, Manhasset NY 11030.  All are invited, free of charge.

Public transit users:  This location is a half-mile walk from the Manhasset 
LIRR station.

     Producer Daniel Hendrick will show us his award-winning film and discuss 
the environmental challenges that Jamaica Bay is facing.   
     Saving Jamaica Bay tells the story of how one community fought government 
inaction and overcame Hurricane Sandy to clean up and restore the largest open 
space in New York City, which had become a dumping ground for garbage, sewage 
and bullet-riddled mobsters. Narrated by Academy-Award winning actress Susan 
Sarandon, Saving Jamaica Bay underscores the importance of citizen action and 
the role of urban nature in protecting our cities from the effects of climate 
     With more than a decade of experience working on environmental issues, Dan 
is ideally positioned to produce this first-ever, full-length documentary on 
Jamaica Bay. He is the author of the only general readership book on the bay’s 
history (“Jamaica Bay,” Arcadia Press, 2006), and spent years as the editor of 
a local newspaper covering Jamaica Bay, the residents who depend on it, and the 
challenges it faces. A graduate of Columbia University, Dan currently works in 
the renewable energy industry.
