The Red Wall Art Gallery at Resorts World Casino NYC is showcasing a new exhibit of art from the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge from April 12 to May 5.
Resorts World will also host a private reception to celebrate the new show on April 21 from 6 to 8 p.m.
The new exhibit will feature several photographs of wildlife from the refuge, in honor of Environmental Awareness Month. On April 23, in honor of Earth Day, Resorts World is also teaming up with the American Littoral Society to do a beach cleanup of Jamaica Bay shorelines.
The wildlife refuge is one of the most important bird sanctuaries in the northeast. More than 330 bird species have been seen at the refuge in the last 25 years.
Jamaica Bay is also home to native reptiles, small mammals, 60 species of butterflies and a large population of horseshoe crabs.
The park’s landscape has a variety of rare native habitats like a salt marsh, upland field and woods, several fresh water ponds and an open stretch of bay.
