General Interest Meeting: Hudson River Estuary Eel Project

March 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

American eels are migratory fish that are hatched in the Atlantic Ocean and enter rivers as tiny “glass eels” each spring. The species is in decline over much of its range, and baseline studies are needed for conservation. Teams of citizen scientists collect glass eels using nets and traps in over a dozen Hudson River tributaries from Staten Island to Troy.

Teatown educator Marie Roche will explain how juvenile fish are counted, weighed, and released to better upstream habitats, often above dams, and how you can help protect this critical species by joining the Eel Project as a volunteer.

For adults.

Programs require pre-registration. Online registration available until noon the day before the event. If online registration is not available, call (914) 762-2912 x110 to register.
