Kids can learn more about Hudson River Estuary


A free program to help children ages 5 to 11 learn more about the Hudson River Estuary will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 26 at Memorial Park in Nyack.

The goal is to help kids gain a greater knowledge of the river and to foster a sense of environmental stewardship.

Activities will include beach combing, using seine nets then seeing what was caught, and studying fish to learn how they adapt.

The sponsors are the Nyack Park Conservancy and Clearwater. Space is limited and registration is required. Send an email to HudsonRiverKids@gmail.com or call Diana Cutt at 845-596-6631 to register or for more information.
