Low-Tide Nature Discovery
July 13 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Celebrate City of Water Day with Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park! Marine biologists from the Coastal Classroom will lead the community in workshops to discover and explore marine life at low tide on the Bushwick Inlet Park jetty. Participants will be learning about the ecosystems and wildlife living along the shoreline of the East River, resiliency, and restoration of original habitat.
At 11:30am the biologists will seine the shoreline for marine life. Participants 16 and older can assist them but must sign a waiver.
Beforehand at 10am we will be creating colored wooden strapping with markings highlighting climate change induced sea level rise, and then place them throughout the park.And there will be cool giveaways…. Please join us!
Enter the park at 86 Kent Ave near N 9th Street and then find us near the riverfront.
