Friends of Greenwich Point
Our mission is to act as an advocate for Greenwich Point. We are committed to responsible stewardship and public education to preserve and enhance Greenwich Point's diverse natural environments and beauty; to safe and appropriate recreation; and to maintenance of its facilities.
The Friends of Greenwich Point will also initiate and carry out projects related to its mission, complementing the efforts and resources of the town.

Dune Grass Planting
Thank you to all the helped!
As a result of Hurricane Sandy there has been a significant loss of plantings at Greenwich
Point. In order to prevent further dune erosion, the FoGP have organized a dune grass
planting event with the assistance of the Conservation Commission, Greenwich Girl Scouts,
and the Town of Greenwich.
Wonderful Warblers Bird Walk
Sunday, May 19, 8:00 am
Join the "First Sunday" naturalists near the southern concession stand for a walk focusing on migrating warblers, the feathered, frenetic jewels of the forest. This is the peak of spring migration, when hundreds of bird species travel from wintering sites in Central and South America to their breeding grounds in North America. Bring binoculars.
First Sunday Birdwalk
