Strap on a pair of waders, cast a net and see what type of marine life you can find in the New York waterways. Maybe you’ll be the first to find a seahorse or identify the 222nd species in the Hudson River? Nearly all of the city’s waterways, from the piers along the West Side Highway to the tips of Jamaica Bay and the East River, are teeming with life. Drop by one of our 13 sites throughout and beyond the city to join top ecologists and biologists to catch, count, identify and release the animals you come across in our waters.
This program is presented in collaboration with the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and environmental education programs at each site. It is a free program, lasting for two hours to educate the public about the waterways of NYC and how they are full of life.
