Prospect Park is home to hundreds of species of birds, but those that live in the lake are especially susceptible to the dangers of fishing and litter.
That’s why volunteers like Mary Beth Artz are dedicated to protecting them.
Mary Beth has built a community around caring for these swans, geese, and ducks.
Her two groups, Wild for Prospect Park and Swan Squad, check in on the animals daily and have made more than 31 rescues this year alone.
On Wednesday, September 28 at 7:00pm on NET-TV, Currents News will feature Mary Beth’s story and how her mission to care for God’s creatures has evolved over the years.
