World Science Festival’s Great Fish Count
June 1, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join our experienced RIPA staff for the World Science Festival’s Great Fish Count! Educators and biologists will be on hand as participants strap on waders and go out into the Harlem River to cast nets in search of the underwater life right here in NYC. We will be learning about the diversity of life in the river and what is needed to survive and thrive in the waters that surround the Island! This is a free event for ages +6. Participants over 13 years old will be allowed to join us in pulling the net, and everyone will get a chance to observe and learn about these amazing creatures.
Location: Harlem River shoreline, north of 103rd Street Footbridge
